I'm a tech guy.. hardware, software, programming, networking, you name it.. I've done it as a hooby.. as a profession.. taught it at a college.. written about it.. etc etc.. I so want to participate in this forum.. but the name "Geek" is offensive to me.. it has a negative connotation and it saps my energy as soon as I see it. I would make a suggestion but.. .. .. exactly.. so I'm here venting instead.. What's wrong with the word "Technology" or "technological innovation" or something positive.. ??? I'm aware that some people may take pride in the word geek.. because it separates them from the crowd.. and thats fine.. but why risk offending anyone? Why not just use a name that is neutral. If the Black Women's section was called "ebony honeys" some folks might think that was cute, while others would surely be offended.. think about it.
