How did we get here?Every team member at GetAGeek has a story and a path that led them to this moment.
What started them on this path?
What was the trigger that led them here?
For me personnally, it was a copy of Popular Science way back around 1980. I saw an add for a synthesizer that you built yourself. I just had to have it. I guess the reason for wanting it so much was because I loved to take things apart and, much to my parent's dismay, never put them back together. Countless pieces of stereo equipment were always scattered around my basement. Why? Because I wanted to know how they work - a typical engineer. I continued with my interest in electronics through high school and then discovered computers. These were electronic devices that could be programmed to do so many different things. A radio is always a radio. A computer can be so much more and the logic behind how they work came really easy to me.
The computer BugI was hooked back then and still am today like most of us here at GetAGeek. That's what makes us "geeky" - a real passion for technology and to be able to witness its rapid evolution, not to mention what lies around the corner, is a real privilege. Smaller, faster, more efficient. You have to really love technology to keep pace — and we do.
The Side Effects of Technology
I recently ran across this quote on Twitter from n33co that really illustrates the impact of technology and computers:
"Turned a magazine sideways. Briefly expected its orientation to change. I'm a moron."
