Chicken Blood and The Geek Evolution

The humble origins of the term "geek" includes a reference from the 1500's to someone who could be regarded as food and three centuries later, to biting the heads of live chickens.

The evolution of the term is therefore a mystery as the modern Geek tends to fuel up on snacks and Cola, forgoing the primeval pleasure of chicken blood dribbling down their chins.

The first reference to technology and the cultural context came in the 1950's as this chart from Flowtown reveals.

Unfortunately though there is a serious gender imbalance in this infographic and female geeks are not acknowledged.
