Thanks to Heather Andring for this submission!

With The Social Network nominated for an Oscar in 2011 and Mark Zuckerberg named Time magazine's "Person of the Year" in 2010, it has never been cooler to be a nerd than it is right now. In this day and age of all things high-tech, we couldn't think of a better time than now to celebrate the self-proclaimed nerds of Match.com. We researched our top 10 cities with the highest educated Match.com members (either in technical or educational occupations), and eureka! Sunnyvale, CA (in the heart of Silicon Valley) is THE number-one place to find yourself your very own nerd.
