One more thing about that interview

There's another quote that struck me that I thought I'd put up here on my blog:

geeks are able to memorise almost any trivial fact, apart from the trivia of their own lives.

So, the trick is, tell a nearby geek the trivia of your life, and they'll remember it better than you do. And vice-versa.

Ha! That sounds so silly, but so true. My wife is a remember-everything type of person, and I'm *always* asking her what we have planned for the weekend. If it weren't for her (and my Palm Tungsten T2, which I've been using a lot more lately), I wouldn't have any clue what was going on in my own life.

The Geek Code desperately needs updating, but in any case here's mine (as of 2010-02-28):

If you really care about knowing what that all means, you either know the code already, or you can get it decoded for you here.
