Geek Definition Insults Half of US

By strahab13 ·
You say "geeks tend to do things on their own and think they know better than anyone else". Well you know, that sounds like the most senior level of the Executive Branch of the U.S. Government. That's politics not technology of course. So, one point, I'd like to make is that your definition has little to do with Info Technology or technical expertise and knowledge. Rather it's a rather broad defintion that has more to do with personality, temperament, or attitude in any occupation or profession (the word "arrogant" comes to mind). You've really got a disciplinary issue that you need to address. On a lighter note, you also must realize, that based on election results the last 8 years, roughtly half of the American voting public seemed to prefer this sort of "strong" attitudinal characteristic in its national leadership. Go figure ... I'm still scratching my head over this one. In any case, a lot of people seem to admire this "cowboy" attitude, so watch your back out there :). Or, better yet, maybe you should try to persude this guy to leave the IT field and enter politics :).
