Unabashed Geek


When my kids first called me a geek, I wasn’t sure how to take it. Now I wear the title proudly. Unabashedly. There are a number of definitions for “geek”. I’m going to go with an enthusiast or expert especially in a technological field or activity or a person who is very interested in and knows a lot about a particular field or activity as the other definitions, like someone who bites the head off a chicken, or someone who is socially inept, just don’t describe me, Well, the biting thing is definitely not me.

To me, a geek is someone who wants to know how things work, particularly when knowing how they work can help in making them work better.

So this website celebrates the good side of geekiness. I’m not going to limit the subject matter, because a number of things interest me, and I don’t know which ones I’m going to find the urge to write about. However, I will separate the various forms of geekiness by using the categories (or “Subjects” as I’ve called them, for people who don’t “do” WordPress). To give you a flavour of what you might expect, look for posts on Photography, Video production, workshop/woodworking, web development, WordPress, Windows, human interfaces and Delphi (the programming language). And probably other things. This intro is not a contract!

I hope you will enjoy my efforts to help others see the world through the eyes of a geek. In fact not just a geek, but a Senior Geek.

No chickens were harmed in the writing of this intro.
