Ahem. I have been called "nerd," "geek," "next Bill Gates," "absent-minded professor," "charismatic," among other things.
I love philosophy, ask really good questions all of the time, and never remember to keep up with keys, socks, and the like.
I have never really known what would be best for me, but since I always find and synthesize innovative ideas, some people think I should be an entrepreneur.
Unfortunately, I ask a lot of questions that no one around me have answers for, so I became a computer geek to figure out how to get them.
I have since been developing a marketable skillset, and plan on becoming a freelance Computer Consultant.
I do need to get certified to maintain credibility, though.
Keeping in mind that this is my personal blog, I know more than enough to pass CCNA and A+ certs, but I need money to do that.
For anyone in the biz, it is understood that one must be accredited to gain credibility. Although I personally disagree with the scheme, in that there is no official guild system, and the education system is broken.
(Microsoft has a stranglehold on the market, and so does Cisco. It is not their fault, they are just investing good money in bad mistakes. More on that later.)
