Radio Mic and headset

Lifelines took delivery of some radio mics. today.  I had some fun playing with them and checking them out.  I know getting enjoyment out of playing with bits of technology makes me a geek.  But trust me, there has never been a better time to be a geek.

Geek-chic is in.  And from what I’ve been hearing it not just the style that’s in.  Playing with gadgets is cool.  I’ve known for a long while that things were changing.  Many years ago (when I started working in IT) if I said to someone at a party that I worked with computers it was always a conversation killer.  Towards the end of my time in the IT industry things had changed.  People would come up to me at gatherings and say “You work with computers… can you tell me…”  Today geek is good.

Even Doctor Who is cool again… ever since Russel T Davis and Christopher Eccelston worked their magic on it, .  At long last I can buy a copy of “Doctor Who Magazine” and not feel embaressed.

Long live the geeks!
