You know you’re a Cool Geek when:
- You live tweet from the hospital while your son is about to be born.
- You read hundreds of RSS feeds every day and act as a human filter to select the best of them for your followers.
- You are smart not to read hundreds of RSS feeds every day, but know who to follow to get the best posts.
- You have not one, not two, but three Twitter accounts to develop a meaningful community on Twitter.
- You have a separate Twitter account just to tweet your shared items from Google Reader, and it already has 200+ followers.
- While half the world isn’t yet aware of it, hundreds of thousands are still waiting for an invite to get in it, and only a handful have access to it, you blog about 11 Google Wave Tools You May Not Know Exist.
- You would like FeedBurner to give you exact subscriber statistics that are not inflated with meaningless FriendFeed subscriptions.
- You scan hundreds of geeky tweets every day, and take pains to favorite the ones you like, so that others can benefit from your filtering just by following a separate Twitter account.
- You blog about What To Do When Twitter Goes Down?, in which you tell readers not to blog about Twitter going down and getting a real life.
- The best idea you can come up with for your birthday wish list is asking your friends for OPML files as gifts.
- You blog about apps you like, and hope that your blog posts get you access to early previews.
- You blog about how to use software to repeatedly open and close the CD-ROM drive tray in your PC to automatically put a baby to sleep.
- In a 140 character tweet, you cram links to 3 blog posts that effectively say everything that has to be said about a topic.
- You manage to find and purchase a .com domain with the word “geek”, as late as 2009 (self-confession!).
- You already knew about most of the examples in this list.
These are simply illustrative examples I came across. Feel free to add your own in the comments!
