During my time of film viewing and gadgets deals, I have seen one pattern that I discover sort of entertaining, and may help clarify how we *cough* “know” who the Geeks are… Innovation. State what you will about Geeks, geeks and innovation are practically compatible terms. Notwithstanding The technology vision whatever else they are fanatics of, geeks LOVE their innovation, and are frequently the first to grasp the most up to date mechanical advances.
Individuals, (and by individuals, I mean as a rule and not in explicit), encourage an affection/loathe/dread relationship with innovation. At the point when we initially get another innovative gadget, we love it. We love our vehicles, PCs, PDAs, tablets, cameras, and every one of our devices and happy little trinkets that accompany present day life. When our gadget doesn’t work *exactly* as wanted, we blow up. We dread existence without them, and dread existence with them. Individuals frequently take out their disappointments on blameless bits of electronic hardware. (I once tossed my phone over a room when I was battling with my then-beau. The telephone phenomenally endure).
In the 1,000+ movies I have viewed in my life, a typical subject emerges. Indeed, even in probably the most seasoned movies made, the “Dread of Innovation” is a predominant 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 in light of his high-stress mechanical occupation. In an array of later movies like the Eliminator arrangement, Transformers arrangement, and I, Robot (2004) just to give some examples, innovation is a danger. Innovation ascends against the beefy makers (or insignificant people) and wrecks society.
Mankind in these movies are additionally mostly spared by innovation. Eliminator’s John Conner is over and again saved by innovation as it tries to pulverize him. The Deceptacons, generally military and non-vehicle robots, cause huge measures of pulverization on Earth while we are spared by Optimus Prime (a 18 wheeler) and his Autobots (An assortment of autos, trucks, and types of Regular citizen transportation). This likewise shows a slight dread of military attack, a stress that war has demolished our general public.
Maybe perhaps the best explanation we dread innovation is that innovation expels our need in the working environment individuals are supplanted with machines, making less individuals be important to play out similar capacities. What use do we have of genuine live sitters when we can have a robot babysitter? In I, Robot society has gotten balanced and inured with the excess of robots: they accomplish all the work we individuals would prefer not to accomplish for ourselves. Robots are obliged by rules to secure us, until they turn on humankind on the grounds that V.I.K.I, the focal ‘mind’ of the robots has decided mankind can’t deal with itself.
Be that as it may, what does this have to do with Geeks, You inquire? Allow me to clarify.
In films, and, all things considered, Geeks grasp innovation and make it their own. Geeks are the initial ones to take-on new innovation like PCs, the web, tablets. Cellphones are a special case, yet for the most part due to the cost of the soonest phones.
In the Vengeance of the Geeks films, geeks perform PC based music. In Unusual Science, geeks fabricate an ideal lady (despite the fact that she unleashes destruction, the Geeks were the ones with the skill to do as such) as a result of their failure to move toward young ladies. They are not genuinely attempting to supplant ladies, however to figure out how to converse with them. In Developing Agonies the geeky Ditty Anne Seaver once fantasies about getting a modem. On the television arrangement Toss, the “Geek Crowd” works in PC fix. Programmers are extremely only a lot of geeks utilizing their better geek information than ‘hack’ into administrative databases. While gallant in the film, the risk of programmers and individuals taking our data off the web 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 aptitude to incorporate himself with a superhuman job.
The men (and a portion of the ladies) in the Theory of the universe’s origin are geeks They are likewise bleeding edge researchers, contemplating String Hypothesis, space, hypothetical material science, things that befuddle numerous laypeople like Penny, the ordinary. Be that as it may, the men made things like a zero-gravity can.
Geeks are regularly the ones to *embrace* innovation since they make it. Genuine “geeks” Bill Doors and Steve Employments have had a huge impact in regular daily existence. The geek has the expertise, know-how, and mind to make, to think forward, to concoct new thoughts and answers to issues that current themselves to society.
The geek fixes the innovation. 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 vehicles, however Geeks do configuration cars and test them.
This grasp of innovation is maybe why cliché Geeks love Sci-fi class: Sci-fi shows an existence where all the difficult work of Geeks has paid off.
