propheadbigFrom “…The term propeller head…appears to derive from a “head in the clouds” type stereotyping of more technically aware people (compare with geek, nerd, absent-minded professor, etc.) or possibly from the propeller beanie. The term may be meant or taken as slightly pejorative but is usually meant with some respect.”

The following links are to pages that are part of’s history over the years.  Some are from back in the “PropHead to Geek” transition days; some are more current and therefore are “Geek Certified.”
