The Era of The Geek

Whew, two and a half months since my last post. Alright, here's my second post in two thousand nine.

I had nothing to do today then i went to pick a random tv show to watch and it happened to be beauty and the geek: season 5. Well, the show was not as interesting as it titled, more of like battle of sexes in my opinion, but there was one monolog that catched me, it was said by one of the geek in the first episode.

"We, geeks, created your society."

Dang, he was probably right.

1. Facebook
Mark Zuckerberg, totally a kind of geek that would get slammed to the locker by all those jocks. He made this social networking site called facebook. Facebook is a hit, superstars, businessmen, congressmen, teenagers, you name it, even grandparents, have at least one facebook account, i am not exaggerating.
Wait, you know what facebook is, don't you? No? What should i say? You, geek!

Here is a video about facebook, made by Julian Smith.

2. Blackberry or iPhone
Blackberry is a total trend, well back in my hometown for sure, same as the iPhone in the United States of A, i guess. They both are not only gadgets that could make it easier for you to communicate, organizing your schedule, sending emails, and whatsoever, but now, they are also fashion items, social statements, signs of coolness.
The product design might not be done by the geek, but inside, the programs, the operating systems, yes, the programming geeks made them. Without it, either your Blackberry nor your iPhone is useful, definitely uncool.

Here is a video to show you how cool it is if you have an iPhone, also made by Julian Smith.

So, those are two of the probably-much-more things that be made by the geeks, not only for the geek, but also for the society. Those are the proofs that the geeks has defined your lifestyle, changed your daily habit; whoever is using those things i mentioned; under your consciousness.

This is it, the era of the geeks, when the geeks are the cools. Now, who wants to be a geek? Well, i need to read more about those PHP programming language, wish me luck, hehe.
