By definition, hipsters are not nerds. Fanboys, smug intellectuals and trustafarian tech workers, sure. Embracing fads and hip things disqualifies them from being called nerds. Nerds adhere to certain rules, none of which revolve around being cool. True nerds ply their trade through isolation and social neglect, not gossip and coffee shops.

Probably and Asian and white thing versus black and Latino thing....not always but percentagewise, yes. I work in Peru and there are nerds here, but nothing like Seattle.

Denver's pretty nerdy. Maybe not quite on the same level as Silicon Valley, but more so than the average bear.

Los Alamos, New Mexico has the highest concentration of nerds in the country, if Nerd=PhD holder.

I've heard that Center City Philadelphia has over 90% population with college degrees and the fastest growing tech sector in the country.

The Left Coast cities (SF through Seattle) have the socially awkward, reclusive nerds who work in IT. The creative, talkative, politically active nerds who want power and like to be seen and heard are in DC. NYC and Boston have their share of them too, but I don't think they make up the majority of those cities. Minneapolis MIGHT qualify as a nerdy city, if you consider the whole hipster fad and gender bending thing to be nerdy.

Least nerdy? Probably any Sunbelt or Rust Belt city, with exceptions.

No, not really. Denver has a hipster scene, but beyond that, they are pretty generic and non-labelable cities. Denver has a ton of athletic, muscular type men so that alone disqualifies it. Austin does have a lot of nerds, but they don't make up the starch majority or forefront of the city as does in SF and Seattle.
