Over time of film viewing and hardware deals, I have seen one pattern that I discover sort of interesting, and may help clarify how we *cough* “know” who the Nerds are… Innovation. State what you will about Nerds, geeks and innovation are practically compatible terms. Notwithstanding whatever else they are devotees of, geeks LOVE their innovation, and are frequently the first to grasp the freshest mechanical advances.
Individuals, (and by individuals, I mean all in all and not in explicit), cultivate an affection/disdain/dread relationship with innovation. At the point when we initially get another mechanical gadget, we love it. We love our vehicles, PCs, PDAs, tablets, cameras, and every one of our contraptions and upbeat little knick-knacks that accompany present day life. When our gadget doesn’t work *exactly* as wanted, we blow up. We dread existence without them, and dread existence with them. Individuals regularly take out their dissatisfactions on honest bits of electronic gear. (I once tossed my phone across a room when I was battling with my then-beau. The telephone marvelously endure).
In the 1,000+ movies I have viewed in my life, a typical topic emerges. Indeed, even in probably the most established movies made, the “Dread of Technology” is a pervasive subject. In the main sci-fi film, Metropolis (1927) a fem-bot demolishes the city. In Modern Time s (1936) Charlie Chaplin, an assembly line laborer, has a mental meltdown due to his high-push mechanical work. In an array of later movies like the Terminator arrangement, Transformers arrangement, and I, Robot (2004) just to give some examples, innovation is a danger. Innovation ascends against the beefy makers (or simple people) and annihilates society.
Mankind in these movies are likewise mostly saved by innovation. Eliminator’s John Conner is consistently saved by innovation as it tries to devastate him. The Deceptacons, generally military and non-vehicle robots, cause enormous measures of annihilation on Earth while we are saved by Optimus Prime (a 18 wheeler) and his Autobots (An assortment of vehicles, trucks, and types of Civilian transportation). This likewise shows a slight dread of military intrusion, a concern that war has demolished our general public.
Maybe perhaps the best explanation we dread innovation is that innovation eliminates our need in the work environment individuals are supplanted with machines, making less individuals be important to play out similar capacities. What use do we have of genuine live sitters when we can have a robot babysitter? In I, Robot society has gotten changed and acclimated with the excess of robots: they accomplish all the work we individuals would prefer not to accomplish for ourselves. Robots are obliged by rules to secure us, until they turn on humankind in light of the fact that V.I.K.I, the focal ‘cerebrum’ of the robots has decided mankind can’t deal with itself.
Be that as it may, what does this have to do with Nerds, You inquire? Allow me to clarify.
In movies, and, all things considered, Nerds grasp innovation and make it their own. Geeks are the initial ones to take-on new innovation like PCs, the web, tablets. Cellphones are an exemption, however generally due to the cost of the soonest PDAs.
In the Revenge of the Nerds films, geeks perform PC based music. In Weird Science, geeks fabricate an ideal lady (despite the fact that she unleashes devastation, the Nerds were the ones with the expertise to do as such) in view of their failure to move toward young ladies. They are not really attempting to supplant ladies, yet to figure out how to converse with them. In Growing Pains the geeky Carol Anne Seaver once fantasies about getting a modem. On the TV arrangement Chuck, the “Geek Herd” works in PC fix. Programmers are truly a lot of geeks utilizing their boss geek information to ‘hack’ into administrative data sets. While brave in the film, the danger of programmers and individuals taking our data off the web is genuine. Indeed, even Tony Stark Iron Man is a Nerd with Money: the comic book fan’s fantasy about being Rich with all the Tech and aptitude to incorporate himself into a superhuman job.
The men (and a portion of the ladies) in the Big Bang Theory are geeks They are additionally forefront researchers, contemplating String Theory, space, hypothetical material science, things that befuddle numerous laypeople like Penny, the typical. Yet, the men made things like a zero-gravity latrine.
Geeks are regularly the ones to *embrace* innovation since they make it. Reality “geeks” Bill Gates and Steve Jobs have had an enormous impact in regular daily existence. The geek has the expertise, ability, and insight to make, to think forward, to concoct groundbreaking thoughts and answers to issues that current themselves to society.
