Today I'm going to tell you a little story about me. I think of myself as your typical description of a geek.
Passionate about all things technological, eager to find out how the inner details work together, a movie and music lover, and spending too much time behind a computer.
Having all those feats, over the course of twenty years, result in getting out of touch with the what interests the large part of the population.
I don't care about soccer, drinking, going out or making a complete fool out of myself. I can talk for hours about some architecture however, or about techy pranks.
But you know what? My surroundings don't have a clue what I'm talking about, usually ending up in me not bothering anymore. Same for taste of humor, I love the dry British kind, and everyone I know hates it.
This isn't some sort of self-pity post however. I'm fine with making conversation, but most of the time it's forced, and I constantly have to fight the analytical part of my mind to not interfere and kill the conversation.
That being said, I'd like to meet some other geeks from around the world to have a chat with, the international developer community.
Do you sometimes have the same feelings? Would you like to meet someone new? Talk about some random IT thing, or just about your life to a fellow geek?
Contact me! Tell me something about you, where are you from, how old are you, what do you do, some story. Please? :)
Writing all these articles is fun, but having dialogues is a lot more stimulating.
(Yeah, non-geeks can mail too, if you have some interest in IT or aren't bored by someone talking about it :))
