关于我的部落格更名

有鉴于原名“非主流”已经被普遍用于80后或90后文化,而我也眼见许多人由于搜索“非主流”而误入,颇为不安。不过Geek是什么呢?我原来也不清楚。前些天Nathan说我们是不同的Geek,我就想,难道我也是Geek?后来看到网友贴出的解释

1.A person who is interested in technology, especially computing and new media.

2.A person who has chosen concentration rather than conformity; one who pursues skill (especially technical skill) and imagination, not mainstream social acceptance.

3.A person with a devotion to something in a way that places him or her outside the mainstream. This could be due to the intensity, depth, or subject of their interest.

解释2:

Geek is a more specific term. Back in the day, geeks worked at carnivals, and (according to the dictionary) “bit the heads off live chickens.” Thankfully, the term now has a different connotation. Like nerds, geeks are smart, but they tend to focus more on technology. As Urban Dictionary explains, these are the people you make fun of in high school and later work for as an adult.

感觉颇为对路。顿改之。
