Getting down with the geeks
I really don’t know how it happened. At school, geeks were the people we used to pick on. At work, geeks were the people we couldn’t do anything with. Now, they’re the people we can’t do anything without. And suddenly, it’s the geeks who are picking on us.
Well, maybe it wasn’t so sudden.The trouble with geeks started many years ago, when we replaced our IBM Selectric typewriters with our IBM Personal Computers. With a typewriter, when your ribbon ran out of ink, that was no problem because a ribbon could be replaced by your secretary.
Now, if there’s a problem with your computer, your secretary would have no idea what to replace, which may be why it was our secretaries who wound up getting replaced. (Note to young readers: Typewriters were mechanical devices with keyboards, but instead of writing with electrons on a screen, you wrote with ink on paper.)
