The Geek goal: universal mastery!

The world is full of Geeks........
You have so many to choose from,LARPers, Star Wars,Trekkies,LOTR,WOW, DDR,Anime,D&D, Cosplay, .....
But at least you are not alone, I happen to be a Geek about Green Technology. Now I don't cover my car in bumper stickers, but I love Mother Earth just as much as any environmentalist , but I express it a different way.
You see, I keep up with the latest technology,gadgets, innovations,tech trends, green trends, energy, architecture,studies, you name it! And why not? I have always believed that we can advance our Technology, our society, without harming the earth. I think the solution is not for us to become off the grid "Earthship Hippies", but rather advance our technology to the point that its use causes little harm to the environment.
Think Mr.Fusion from Back to the Future, Clean Energy, Smart Buildings, futuristic ECO communities, Flying Cars,Robots, whatever your idea of the future may be. The key is finding a way to get there without causing too much harm.I think the solution is Green Technology; it provides a way for us to have the coolest technology in the world without destroying it in the process.
People don't like to change their habits for excess and waste so our technology must conform. Don't get me wrong, I know everything even Green Technology such as solar panels can have a negative impact on our environment, but as we advance we can produce less waste, greater efficiency , reusable materials, and down right cooler technology. So advance we must!
Show Mother Earth some love, If you are a geek for green technology feel free to admit it, the world can use more of you!
