  • I've never heard it before
  • It looks like a reasonable sounding construction
  • it's not in any online dictionary
  • it has a google score (as of this moment) of 1060 hits
  • ...but most of those hits are about "Is 'nerdiosity' a word?"
  • if enough people start using it in a consistent manner then it might be considered a 'real' word.
  • I think 'nerdiness' is the appropriate existing term for the expected concept (gscore of 354,000), but that's kinda nerdy to point that out.
