First of all, and like any geek, I couldn’t pass up this famous phrase that everyone writes when they make their first computer program.
Now yes, welcome to ungeekencolombia, a personal blog about my adventures in this beautiful country, my quirks, technological and cultural curiosities. To introduce myself, my name is Manuel, I am a systems engineer based in the city of Cali in Colombia and passionate about the world of the Internet.
For many years I have spent visiting different blogs and forums on various topics, such as technology, culture, travel, etc. and I had always been passionate about the world of blogs, so I decided to enter and I hope you like it and share your opinion.
What the heck is a geek?
Yes, this should have been the first question to answer, so here I leave you courtesy of wikipedia a somewhat formal or stuffy definition of what it means to be tech crazy.
Geek (from geek English, pronounced “guik”: IPA / gi: k /) is a term used to refer to the person fascinated by the technology and the computing.1 2 3 The term “geek” in Spanish it is related only to technology, unlike the use of the term geek in English.
Why a geek in Colombia?
And why not? Well the truth the idea was born, because among many blogs and pages that I read daily, it is precisely “a geek in japan“Possibly some of you already know it, others maybe not and if you don’t know it, I invite you to stop by. It’s great and it has inspired me to take a similar theme but focused on my country (don’t worry, I’m not copying it, I have written a couple of emails with the blog’s author and he has agreed that I do it). So I have decided to chronicle my adventures, learnings and curiosities, from a Colombian perspective and show the world the geek side of this beautiful country.
