Lately I’ve been reading several blogs by self-proclaimed geeks.
So how do you decide if you’re a geek? I’ve always jokingly referred to myself as a computer geek, but if I go by others’ definitions, I’m not a geek because I don’t work with computers or program with vi (or emacs, depending on which school of thought you belong to).
I don’t have my A+ or Network+ certs, but I do watch How It’s Made and Mythbusters. I get most computer jokes.
So am I a geek? Yes. I don’t care what anyone else says, I think I am. That has to count for something.
