SomeoneGotMyNick's Journal: I'm a Trendsetter!!!!

Journal by SomeoneGotMyNick
When I was in high school (back in the early 80's), I was the quintessential geek. But, little did I know, I was also a major trendsetter.

Let me explain using geeky lists:

Twenty years ago, a Geek used to...

  • Own a computer
  • Carry electronics on their belt (mainly calculators)
  • Listen to computer generated music (and liked it)

Today, everybody seems to.....

  • Own a computer
  • Carry electronics on their belt (mainly mobile phones, with built in calculators)
  • Listen to computer generated music (Hip Hop, Trance, Dance, Electronica)

As I start to enter my "fogey" years, I want all you young'uns to remember who's footsteps you follow in.
