National Techies Day
Could it be that your computer has been acting strangely lately? Is there a strange sound coming from the computer? Is your laptop freezing? Are you getting too hot sitting on your lap?
Are you stuck on how to get your webcam working for an important presentation? Are you having trouble understanding why your network is running so slow? Is your laptop unable to communicate with the printer when you try to print a document?
If you feel any of these scenarios are familiar, then you need a techie in the life. Techies are the wonderful people who can navigate the complex technology that is part of our everyday lives. They are essential to our survival in the modern age, and their importance is increasing with each passing day.
National Techies Day is a celebration of these skilled individuals and all they do to keep computers and other technical gadgets running every day.
National Techies Day was initially created to help high school students learn about technology careers. Techies.com, with support from CNET Networks, first created the day in 1998.
The future of technology will bring more integration of technology into our daily lives. This awareness brings with it the realization that technologically-savvy people will be in great demand. This world needs men and women, both boys and girls, who can navigate this technologically-driven world and help others who may be less well-informed.
What is a techie exactly?
Techies are people who are passionate about technology and see it moving forward. It is almost certain that a new techie designed a technical toy, and it will also be available for purchase by other techies.
Information Technology specialists are often called Techies in modern times. This is because they keep offices, businesses, and individuals moving forward.
Obsolescence is the inevitable process in which technology becomes outdated as newer tech is developed and integrated into our daily lives. It’s both the bane and the balm for techies. However, regardless of how long their inventions are lasting, techies deserve to be praised for all they have done and for what they will do in the future.
This is an important day. Recognize the importance of technology in today’s society and take note.
Teachers and parents can celebrate this day together by making sure that their children are educated about the importance of technology to the world. If your child is a gamer or a lover of computers, they might be interested in becoming a techie. Encourage your children to pursue a career in computer science, or adopt a lifestyle that revolves around technical careers. Technology is the future of work. This will ensure more job security in these types and other careers.
To celebrate National Techies Day, we need to recognize and thank those who make the world go round. Make sure you send a thank-you card or email to those who keep the printers working, those networks running, and that email got to its destination.
You can say ‘thanks’ to the IT department at work or throw a party for them. Take them out for lunch, make them cookies, and give them a cake.
Some people have a tendency to look at technology more than others when they start talking about it. Learn a little about the professions of tech-savvy friends to show them how much you appreciate them. You’ll be able to identify the job when a techie tells you that they do one.
