Welcome to WorldGeekDay.com!
A day to celebrate geeks, both in the workplace, at home, school, college or social club.
According to Dictionary.com, a GEEK is described as:
a digital-technology expert or enthusiast (a term of pride as self-reference, but often useddisparagingly by others).
a person who has excessive enthusiasm for and some expertise about a specialized subject or activity:a foreign-film geek.
a peculiar or otherwise dislikable person, especially one who is perceived to be overly intellectual.
a carnival performer who performs sensationally morbid or disgusting acts, as biting off the head of alive chicken.
verb (used without object)
to be overexcited about a specialized subject or activity, or to talk about it with excessive enthusiasm(usually followed by out ):
I could geek out about sci-fi for hours.
And in addition, the Mirriam-Webster dictionary also add:
: a person who is socially awkward and unpopular : a usually intelligent person who does not fit in with other people
: a person who is very interested in and knows a lot about a particular field or activity
This is NOT a joke!!!! It has been set up by what one could describe as a "geek", and the recognition of geeks worldwide is required.
For too long, Geeks have been ridiculed and taken for granted. It's time to change!!!! Participate NOW!
World Geek Day! The first one is September 12, 2014, so put it on your calendar.
