Most of us can relate to why people want to be rock stars, they get VIP treatment, earn of a lot money and can sing and dance like no one else can. However, there is a new group who most people would like to be, they innovate, create and change the way the world works, not through music but through tech. Of course, I am referring to the group of people know as Geeks.
Geeks are people who find topics such as mathematics, science, technology and entrepreneurship very interesting. Some write code, design products, create technology and many more other activities. The geek group is not one that requires just education or a degree, rather it requires a way of thinking or mind set that, you can solve problems and create solutions.
Most of us if asked who Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Ginni Rometty, Satya Nadella, Warren Buffet, Mark Zuckerberg, Oprah Winfrey, Richard Branson, Alan Sugar, Sheryl Sandberg, Mike Adenuga, Mohammed Ibrahim, Tony Elumelu or any of the other tech entrepreneur are, the chances are we probably would know more than half the people on the lists, which is a lot more than if I were to list rockstars from different countries. This is because we as a people are more connected in a digital age, as a results of some of these tech entrepreneurs. With more and more people interested in tech, is it safe to say the rise of the Geeks has began?
