Thursday Tip: 50 Skills Every Real Geek Should Have

December 18, 2008

I don’t know about you, but I certainly wear my geek badge with pride. Recently Maximum PC magazine did an article listing the 50 Skills Every Real Geek Should Have. Some of you can ace the test and others may be baffled. Believe me, I don’t think anyone is going to know all 50 of the skills. You can take the “test” if you wish, but I’m sending you there because there are a lot of great tips embedded in those 50 skills. I still haven’t worked my way through the entire list and have picked up lots of great information. I’ve also put a number of items onto my to-do list. Right near the top is to set up one of my USB Flash Drives to run many of my essential apps and that skill is right there on the list.

Do you have a skill that should be on the list? Leave a comment and maybe we can build our own list of skills!
