I’m bringin’ Geeky back!

So all through the 80′s and 90′s, anyone part of the IT industry was labeled as a nerd or a geek. These terms were once deemed as hurtful and unnecessary. IT professionals often didn’t want to try to explain what they do as people typically would reply with a quick “Oh so you’re a computer nerd.” response thinking they were being cunningĀ linguists.

But the world changes. And with change, comes newer concepts. And yes, I’ll name a few people that some IT professionals would shutter to be compared to or even mentioned in the same sentence with. Mark Zuckerburg, has been one of the biggest names to aiding in our defense. The college-boy wonder that brought social networking to one site, making him the youngest billionaire in the world. He’s definitely aided in making IT professionals come to terms that in today’s modern world, Geeks are Sexy. And I’m not talking about pure looks here. Let’s face it, the average IT person doesn’t look like Brad Pitt, Matt Damon or George Clooney. And let’s not forget the scarce female IT person rarely looks like Jessica Biel, Eva Longoria, or Ashley Judd. (Let’s not get into a debate on attractive people on the red carpet and stick to the subject).

So whether you’re that lone IT ranger out there with his mind set on small business and home support or that IT task force taking on corporate America, feel free to rival in your new found title. Geeks!

Wear the name proud because who knows when this trend will end.
