Web Geek Buttons

I’m a web geek, are you? If you’re not sure, below are some ways to tell.

You might be a web geek if:

  • You understand ® ™ ©
  • You have to hide the fact that you kinda like using a WYSIWYG editor.
  • You can identify any font anywhere.
  • You love Google.
  • You think it’s funny to put ‘The’ in front of web companies. IE: The Google, The Twitter, The Facebook.
  • You hear the phrases “above the fold” or “outside the box” multiple times a day.
  • You love Firefox because you live in an illusion where Microsoft isn’t dictating its terms to humanity.
  • You swear more at work than you do at home or in traffic. And usually to IE.
  • You think ClientsFromHell.net is better than anything on TV.
  • You check Facebook at least once an hour. Twitter once every 10 minutes or so.
  • You have an iPad.
  • You don’t know what to do when the internet goes down.
  • You know what 4G is.
  • You think that WordPress is da’ bomb.
  • You sit on your computer when you should be sleeping.
  • You roll your eyes when someone says “online blog.”
  • You really want a button, or shirt, that says “You are the CSS to my HTML.”
  • You know why saying “I’m going to post a new blog” is wrong.
  • You love Firebug.
  • You prefer getting an email address over a phone number.
  • You think the cloud is the greatest idea ever.
  • You stream TV instead of watching it when it’s really on.
  • You wish you could Edit -> Undo things in real life.
  • You’re way addicted to StumbleUpon.
  • You use words like LOL and BRB offline.
  • You like to “Think Different.”
  • You really want to Tweet, Stumble, Like, Reddit or Digg this.
  • You made it though this whole list.

So what’d I miss? What else makes a web geek stand out?

    Why do lists like this always insist on self reference at the end? It’s always like “you laughed at every item on this list” or “you’re going to forward this to your friends” or both in this case.

    Other than that, funny stuff.

    ^^^I kind of agree with Watson, but one thing I would add is that you attempt to use ctrl + f when reading a book.
