Derogatory term, most frequently directed at people who obsessively pursue hobbies which consist almost entirely of gathering information about a favourite topic, generally a fairly benign and arcane device such as a specific type of computer. Origins possibly explained by the information-gatherer collectives' peculiar habit of wearing outdoor clothing or jackets at socially inappropriate or awkward times such as at the dinner table or in bed.
