While talking with a friend we came to a discussion about the words “techie” and “geeky” and wondered what the “correct” permutation of the words were.
So, seeking more knowledge, I turned to the know-it-all of the Internet, Google!

|geeky||1,040,000 (80x more)|
Wow. The undisputed champs: “geeky” and “techie”. Why is one better than the other? I must be missing some rule in the English language? Or did they just battle it out and -y on geek and -ie on tech won?
