First Post

Sunday, February 20, 2005

So here it is the first post on my new shiny blog. My purpose here is simple; I want to crush the term geek. It is an outdated and useless word. Well, not completely I suppose it could still be used to describe some people in the world. You could I guess still use it to label someone with a stunning lack of social skills, poor clothing tastes and pension for some obscure nerdy hobby (like pen collecting or an obsession for Buffy the Vampire Slayer). Please note that some of my best friends are geeks and there is nothing wrong with that. What I object too is the broad use to describe any one who “gets it”. I play games online (and trust me I pwn noobs…hard), I rock the Ipod, I know how to get free stuff from the internets and yes I know Linux. But guess what else I can do. I can talk to girls, dress my self in dapper threads and when I walk into gym I am not going to be the most scrawny pasty dude in the place. So the next time refers to you dear non-existent reader as a geek, tell them “Fuck you I am no mere geek, I am a Technologist!!!”

And no I will not fix your computer.
