The need for geeks

I am a tech enthusiast and I enjoy playing with systems, building servers, figuring out problems, and getting things done. Many times I am just all in my stuff and many time I get lost. I have to back track and used my experience and knowledge to get things going, and even in this day and age some things are not simple.

So knowing what I do, I am constantly surprised by the folks and institutions that don’t have a handy tech guy. Granted there is someone in your business or family that is handy, but I think you are really limiting yourself and your organization by not taking full advantage of whats available. I constantly hear ” I didn’t know that would do that ” and without someone deeply knowledgeable about your setup and goals I don’t see how you would.

My advice ( YIKES ! ) spend a couple of bucks with a real IT guy or gal ( probably not at Best Buy, no offense ) and see if you can get some things rolling with real problem solving.
