You just might be a 2.0 geek if…

April 2, 2008

I am just finishing up some research (if you can ‘finish’ research…I meant to say “I’m finished damn it!”) on social learning technologies and thought about how “2.0” has changed me in the past couple of years…so, in Jeff Foxworthy style…

You just might be a 2.0 geek if…

  1. Your spelling suggestor does not pick up the word “folksonomy”when you’re writing your blog
  2. Your shopping list is a tag cloud
  3. You hold up your cell phone up in the air at a rock concert instead of a match…then you immediately upload the picture (or video) you took to your Facebook for friends
  4. You don’t want to listen to someone talk unless they have an orange feed icon on their forehead
  5. You look up recommendations on the Web while walking around Barnes & Noble rather than ask someone at the information desk
  6. You have a rating and ranking system for just about everything
  7. You Skype your spouse when you are only two rooms away because you don’t want to take off your headset, your video is set just right, and you’re in the middle of a good gtalk conversation
  8. You blow dust off of the printer paper you just found
  9. You check Feedburner daily
  10. Your thumbs are abnormally large from texting
  11. You have a Google alert for “avatar cleans house”
  12. You know that AJAX is not a household cleaner
  13. You have to go to the start button to find Word
  14. You think this is hysterical

    In all honesty, I created a mini-wiki that my S.O. and I used when planning for our enormous elaborate wedding (21 guests, 30-minute ceremony).

    You are a geek. And I mean that in a most admirable way.

    I must be a geek too but even worse I’m an HR geek! We should form a Society for Geeks (wonder what that would be called?) and do geek stuff together…..
