I’ve been an avid fan of WordPress for some time. The company, Automattic, do a lot of good. As well as running the software that runs this website, they power a huge proportion of the internet. Many of your favourite blogs, as well as a huge number of business and eCommerce websites all use the WordPress platform, which is separated by WordPress.com and WordPress.org. Recently, I won’t lie to you, I’ve been taking a vested interest in the people behind WordPress. I’ve logged onto the WordPress Support Forums and I’ve been trying my hand occasionally at helping those with WordPress issues. This has been my experience so far.
Whilst an update on our new website might not come to the forefront of your minds, I certainly feel like it’s been a while since I’ve had a significant update for everyone. Indeed, I usually only really provide an update when there’s been a big change and this time, I guess there kind of has been a big change to the new site. There’s quite a few changes to it in fact, which I think warrants a bit of attention.
Some people adore the idea of speaking to others about their geekdoms, there are those who come to this website looking for a geek filled website which they can view the ideas of his or her fellow geek.
While I am having the busiest day of his my in quite some time today, I thought I’d simply do a small post to let you stop for a moment and ask yourself one very simple question:
What does Geekdom mean to you?
It’s a ridiculously arbitrary question, which really simple answers. I’d like to invite you to share your ideas of what geekdom means to you. You’ve heard enough about what I think but here we go once more for those unaware:
A geekdom is something that someone is passionate about. All geeks are passionate for their hobby, often obsessively so.
I’d like for you to come up for an answer to the above posed question and respond in two ways:
- What does the idea of “geekdom” mean?
- What are your geekdoms, what do they mean to you?
I’d really like to see if we can get some responses from the viewers on this matter, so please do speak up! We’d love to hear from you, no matter where you’re from and no matter what your geekdom is.
