I really don’t know why I’m as much of a geek as I am. As soon as my parents bought home our first computer, it was all I spent my time on. (so much so that rules such as “only one hour of computer after tea” had to be implemented).
My career came out of my being a geek, rather than caused by it.
My geeky-ness seems to be moving away from “computers” however, to be more specific and focused on IT areas.
I’m also becoming something of a photography and language geek.
