My Geek Fluency is improving. Most days, I totally parse what my classmates are saying.
Here are a couple of the Geek Cultural references that I learned this week:
1) Has The Large Hadron Collider Destroyed The World Yet?
2) “I Attack the Darkness”
That’s what I call quality education.
(I learned some code stuff too.)
And here’s a third thing I learned:
3) Having an Android phone makes me the Nerd of the Geek World
Learned this one when I innocently asked a group of guys in the common room: “Does anyone have a charger for an Android phone?”
Answer: (scoff) “We’re tech people. We all use iPhones. (scoff, giggle, scoff).
Alrightly then. My Android smart phone cost me $20 to buy and $35 a month for service. It does almost everything your iPhone does, minus scoring me Geek Street Cred. Go ahead and scoff. I’ll giggle when you pull up your bank accounts.
