Three cheers for the geeks

geekBeing a Geek makes you more productive, according to Chris Garrett, whose own geek credentials are impeccable. He points out that thinking about systems applies to problems outside computer systems, and that outsourcing to give yourself more think time is a great approach and not lazy at all.

My first study was in science (Biochemistry if you must know) and I have long held that the analysis skills and process thinking from this study have helped me since then in unrelated fields. I work with geeks and given that a lot of my job is about designing and managing websites I’m sure I have a small and happy inner geek.

So I’m really happy to see a positive take on what Geeks may bring to work.

And if you’re not sure whether you qualify as geek try this online test to check (hint being female automatically scores you extra points).
