In my mind, “geek” and “nerd” are related, but capture different dimensions of an intense dedication to a subject:
geek - An enthusiast of a particular topic or field. Geeks are “collection” oriented, gathering facts and mementos related to their subject of interest. They are obsessed with the newest, coolest, trendiest things that their subject has to offer.
nerd - A studious intellectual, although again of a particular topic or field. Nerds are “achievement” oriented, and focus their efforts on acquiring knowledge and skill over trivia and memorabilia.

This is a visualization of all the scored goals in the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Hover over each goal to see details about it. Use the list below to filter which goals are shown by country or by match. Please note that even though a lot of care went into creating this the accuracy of the data can not be guaranteed. The location of each goal has been estimated and not calculated precisely. The visualization was put together by Emil Johansson, a Chemical Engineering student currently living in Gothenburg, Sweden. He is passionate about many things, including photography, the web, chemistry and the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, and he has a growing fascination for football.
If you want to contact Emil you can do so by email at emil [at] ejoh.se or on Twitter.
