Definition and origin of “Grok”

There being a small trend of words and wording them, here at MonstaPro; I thought I’d share another!

GrokCode’s Jess Johnson presides:

‘Grok’ is a fairly common word amongst geeks and techies, and usage is especially dense within the Computer Science university crowd, but it hasn’t really permeated mainstream usage. So where did the word ‘grok’ come from? What exactly does it mean? Have you grokked grok? It only makes sense that a site called GrokCode should try to answer some of these questions.
