I had a friend who spent her days sitting around talking about the ins and outs of the Internet.
She was a tech geek.
I was a geek.
And she knew a lot about geek culture.
“I love nerds,” she said.
“But I’m not a nerd.
I’m an academic nerd.
You can be a nerd and be a geek at the same time.
I am a nerd, but I am not a geek.”
But she was also a nerd in the sense that she could find something funny about anything.
“That’s the most important part of nerd culture,” she explained.
She loved that, because nerds are the ones who are really into making things, and they’re the ones you want to go to the movies with.
That’s how she came up with a way to talk about her nerd side without being an asshole.
“In nerd culture, we’re all nerds,” explained Lila, who grew up in the Bronx, and is now a professor at the City University of New York.
“There’s this assumption that nerds are all nerdy.
I don’t think that’s the case.
It’s the nerd that you like.”

She started her nerd fandom in high school, when she found a copy of a copycat Google Doodle on the back of her teacher’s office, which she kept as a souvenir.
Lila would go to class and read about the Doodle.
“She’d say, ‘I wish I could do that,'” said Lila’s father, Peter.
“Then she’d look at the Google Doodle and she’d say to me, ‘Dad, what’s wrong with that?’
She’d be like, ‘The little blue dots that are on it don’t belong to Google.'”
Peter would explain to his daughter that there was an entire world of nerds.
And Lila was fascinated by the world of people who would spend their free time creating the most awesome things ever.
She’d write about it, and she would draw it, in the hopes that someday, someday, someone would come up with something that would be so good it would make Google proud.
So when Lila became a senior at City College of New Jersey, she knew that she wanted to become a programmer.
She decided to apply to the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence program.
But first, she had to figure out how to code.
It wasn’t until the summer of 2017, that she actually got her first coding job.
She had no experience with web development, so she asked her father for help.
“He told me, don’t do it,” Lila said.
But he wasn’t going to tell her to leave.
“So I said, ‘What if I told you you have to learn how to do it?'”
Peter, who was also her math teacher, was the one who gave her the clue: “Write your own code.”
The following summer, Lila took a coding class.
The class was the first time she had ever actually worked on a computer, and the first programming class she had attended.
“When I first took it, I was like, I need to learn programming,” she told me.
But she wasn’t a computer expert, and Peter was the only one who could help her out.
The rest of the class was just him talking about things.
“This is what it’s like to be a computer nerd,” Peter said.
And then Lila had a problem.
She wanted to write some code, but she was having trouble understanding what was going on.
“It’s like a language,” Lilah said.
Peter knew she was a bit confused.
He explained to her that, when you type a string, the program that’s running will look at that string and figure out what it means.
“What is that string?
Why is that word here?
Is that a letter?
Or a number?”
Peter told her.
“The way I see it is, we get that string from a website, and we write it down.
And we know it’s going to be interpreted by our computer.
It could be a phrase.
Or it could be an image.
But we have no idea what that string is.
We don’t know if it’s a number or a string.”
Lila didn’t know what she wanted, but Peter didn’t give up.
He told her what the program was doing, and it worked.
“And that’s when I really started to learn,” Lilla said.
She went back to her computer, but it was hard to get it to work.
“We have this big list of keywords that we’re going to search for and then we’ll see what that keyword is,” Peter explained.
But this time, Lila wasn’t able to find a word.
