Not Just a Geek

By Kathleen W. Redman
1     Do you know where Deadfish, Idaho, is? Do you know what happened on December 12, 1991? Do you know what DBEYR means? Do you know what a sleep camel is?
 
2     If you don't know, ask a techie! You know what a techie is, don't you? A techie is someone who is very interested in technology. Some techies like only the very newest technology. Most techies are interested in computers more than anything else.
 
3     Some people think all techies are geeks or nerds. That isn't always true. Many people who would not be called geeks or nerds are becoming techies now.
 
4     You may think your school's techie is a geek. If your computer goes down, you will need the techie. The techie will be worth a mountain of gold then. He or she can get your computer up and running faster than you can say megabyte!
 
5     Techie's Day is for all technicians, not just computer techies. There are many technical jobs for skilled people who can work on equipment of all kinds.
