I’m a Neek.
That’s a combination of Nerd and Geek.
Ok, so I just looked up the definition of Nerd. Here it is: “a foolish or contemptible person who lacks social skills or is boringly studious.”
Yep. That fits. Foolish. Contemptible. Lacks Social Skills. Boringly Studious.
Anyone up for a discussion on which dead Russian author best captures the nuances of social relativity and masters character development in such a way that makes the literature as relevant today as it was back when they were not dead?
But, I’m also a Geek. Dictionary: “..an unfashionable or socially inept person.” who “engages in or discuss computer-related tasks obsessively or with great attention to technical detail.” Yep. I’m unfashionable. Socially inept. And I like technology. Probably too much. Except when it comes to eReaders. They are of the devil.
For example, my boy is in IT school right now. He is learning about proxy servers and Active Directory and Domain Controllers and so many other cool things that I work with every day at my job; and I love having geeky conversations with him about it all.
So, I’m a Neek. A Nerd and a Geek.
And that’s why Evernote is perfect for me.
But, for other reasons as well: It is my brain. My filing cabinet. My to-do list.
I’ve been digging a bit deeper into Evernote lately; investigating how I can use it even more efficiently, in an attempt to get my brain back on track. I thought I’d start sharing on occasion some of the very cool things I’ve found.
I’ve created a new Page dedicated to Evernote Ideas, Tips and Tools. You can find get to it two different ways:
- At the very top of this page, you will find 4 tabs (above the Header): About Me, Writings, Resources and Contact. Click on Resources to access the drop-down menu. Hover over “Productivity Tools and Apps”, and a side menu will appear with the Evernote Page. Click on that and there you go. Or…..
- By clicking on This Link, if you are lazy. Like me. (But the other way is cooler, mainly because it took me forever to figure out how to make it work right–NEEK.)
