The Geek Code is basicly a (small) part of Internet history. When I did the first incarnation of the code back in '93, it was as a lark. Eventually, it evolved into the form you see online now and has remained virtually unchanged since that time.


The following is an example Geek Code. If you are interested in a particular category, click on the letter and you will be sent to the explanation for that letter.
