Why Geeks and Technology Remain closely connected
All through my long stretches of film watching and hardware deals, I have seen one pattern that I see as sort of entertaining, and could assist with making sense of how we *cough* “know” who the Geeks are… Technology. Express out loud whatever you will about Geeks, geeks and technology are practically tradable terms. No matter what whatever else they are enthusiasts of, geeks LOVE their technology, and are in many cases the first to embrace the most current technological advances.
Individuals, (and by individuals, I mean overall and not in unambiguous), encourage an affection/disdain/dread relationship with technology. At the point when we initially get another technological gadget, we love it. We love our vehicles, PCs, cells, tablets, cameras, and every one of our contraptions and upbeat little trinkets that accompany current life. When our gadget doesn’t work *exactly* as wanted, we fly off the handle. We dread existence without them, and dread existence with them. Individuals frequently take out their dissatisfactions on honest bits of electronic hardware. (I once tossed my phone across a room when I was battling with my then-sweetheart. The telephone wonderfully made due).
In the 1,000+ movies I have watched in my life, a typical subject emerges. Indeed, even in probably the most established films made, the “Feeling of dread toward Technology” is a pervasive subject. In the principal sci-fi film, City (1927) a fem-bot obliterates the city. In Present day Time s (1936) Charlie Chaplin, an assembly line laborer, has a mental meltdown due to his high-stress technological work. In a range of later movies like the Eliminator series, Transformers series, and I, Robot (2004) just to give some examples, technology is a threat. Technology ascends against the meaty makers (or simple people) and obliterates society.
Humankind in these movies are additionally to some degree saved by technology. Eliminator’s John Conner is over and over saved by technology as it tries to annihilate him. The Deceptacons, typically military and non-auto robots, cause huge measures of obliteration on Earth while we are saved by Optimus Prime (a 18 wheeler) and his Autobots (different vehicles, trucks, and types of Regular citizen transportation). This likewise shows a slight feeling of dread toward military intrusion, a concern that war has demolished our general public.
Maybe perhaps of the best explanation we dread technology is that technology eliminates our need in the work environment individuals are supplanted with machines, making less individuals be important to carry out similar roles. What use do we have of genuine live sitters when we can have a robot babysitter? In I, Robot society has become changed and acclimated with the excess of robots: they accomplish practically everything we individuals would rather not accomplish for ourselves. Robots are compelled by rules to safeguard us, until they turn on mankind in light of the fact that V.I.K.I, the focal ‘cerebrum’ of the robots has decided humankind can’t deal with itself.
Be that as it may, what does this have to do with Geeks, You inquire? Allow me to make sense of.
In films, and, in actuality, Geeks embrace technology and make it their own. Geeks are the initial ones to take-on new technology like PCs, the internet, tablets. Cellphones are a special case, however generally in view of the cost of the earliest cells.
In the Retribution of the Geeks films, geeks perform PC based music. In Bizarre Science, geeks fabricate an ideal lady (in spite of the fact that she unleashes destruction, the Geeks were the ones with the expertise to do as such) as a result of their failure to move toward young ladies. They are not really attempting to supplant ladies, yet to figure out how to converse with them. In Developing Torments the geeky Tune Anne Seaver once fantasies about getting a modem. On the television series Throw, the “Geek Group” works in PC fix. Programmers are simply a lot of geeks utilizing their better geek information than ‘hack’ into legislative data sets. While brave in the film, the danger of programmers and individuals taking our data off the internet is genuine. Indeed, even Tony Obvious Iron Man is a Geek with Cash: the comic book fan’s fantasy about being Rich with all the Tech and expertise to incorporate himself into a superhuman job.
The men (and a portion of the ladies) in the Theory of how things came to be are geeks They are additionally state of the art researchers, concentrating on String Hypothesis, space, hypothetical physical science, things that confound numerous laypeople like Penny, the ordinary. Be that as it may, the men made things like a zero-gravity latrine.
Geeks are much of the time the ones to *embrace* technology since they make it. Reality “geeks” Bill Doors and Steve Occupations have had a colossal impact in day to day existence. The geek has the ability, skill, and insight to make, to think forward, to concoct novel thoughts and replies to issues that current themselves to society.
The geek fixes the technology. We go to geeks when our PC breaks, when we can’t fix our cellphone, when we don’t have the foggiest idea how to set up our new TV framework. Presently, I’m not saying that geeks fix cars, yet Geeks really do configuration autos and test them.
