Geeky Me!

In Thoughts on August 4, 2009 at 1:57 pm

Most of the time, people tend to shy away from persons who are geek. They say that geeks are persons who have very little social interaction skills and that they are structurally homo sapiens but are functionally machines.

I saw a t-shirt sold online that has a print on it saying:

I already talked to you for a minute, that’s enough social interaction for a day!

The designer was of course just horsing around, and it was funny and cool. But the sad thing about it is that people do perceive of geeks as what the t-shirt says they are.

Well, I look at it in a different perspective. For me, geeks are sociable. They do know how to be human.  They know how important it is to  interact with people. They try to lessen the geographical gap between homo sapiens. They create social sites to bridge this gap and connect the people around the world.

You may think that I’m partial about this. It’s up to you. You’re entitled of your own opinion as much as I am entitled of mine. But one thing is for sure, I am a geek and I’m proud of it!
