More Thanh Words

"My name is Thanh and I'm a Blogger". Now that I have admitted to that, I can say that I'm a stereotypical "geeky" Engineer who enjoys sci-fi books and movies and into all things technological. I also love music and have a passion for FOOD. I'm a social person and like to talk to people. I hate people who are fake or overly aggressive. If you're also into some serious discussion, with a pinch of sarcasm and a dash of real emotion, then please read on.

Geek Is The New Cool

It seems like being Geek is the new black this season, its cool to be a geek. New TV shows such as American Inventor and Nerd FC are cashing in on the Geek amplitude modulated wave.

Geeks are now the (gaseous molecular) stars of the show and not purely there to be embarrassed. Shows such as Average Joe (trash tv) made fun of geeks, who were merely there to highlight the perfectness (is that a proper word) of the himbos (thats a male bimbo) chasing the beauty. However in these new shows, the geeks are the (electrostatically attractive) force for what they bring along, a different perspective to life.

With the power of the Internet, geeks worldwide are having a huge influence on society. With geeks usually the first to adopt new technology, it means they are always at the forefront of what is happening. Therefore they can influence how new technologies are used and for what purposes they are used. As with the case of Internet, with some knowledge of html, one geek can influence many other people. A perfect example of this is the new emerging phenomenon of blogging (web logging). The world's most popular blog Boing Boing is run not by a multi-national company, but just your average [sum(N data points)/N] geek. Boing Boing has so much influence with their large readership that the site has been able to highlight wrong doings.

I think I'm a bit of a geek. On my own invented PI scale, how many decimal place digits you can remember in PI by heart, I only know 5 so I would rank a 5. Anyone ranking about 5 or more is probably a geek in my opinion, so what do you rank? Anyway this opinionated geek here hopes to heal the world (make it a better place, for you and for me and the entire human race) through the power of this blog. Now if only 1.7 million people read this blog every day rather than about 60, it would make it much easier to spread the message (in a hypertext bottle). Oh well, it just means that YOU, one of those 60 readers, has to work harder to help pass on the message of peace and equality for all human kind, and their pets as well.

Come on Paul, I know you're a bigger geek than a PI geek factor of 2. See you forgot all your maths when you don't use it enough like you. :-)
