Technophilia

"It is not currently considered a psychological condition or a disorder..."

This is my first attempt to create a blog. I have never written a blog ever before but I think the idea of writing the things that are happening in my life is just cool, may it be in my workplace, in my home or in any of my experiences in everyday life in society or in the ever changing cyber world! I am not really sure if there will be anyone who will read my blog or if there is anyone who will be interested at all in what i think or say. But what the heck...I will do this anyway. :)

As a start, I think it just makes sense to tell you a little about myself. I am a technophile.
For those of you who doesn't know what "technophilia" is, here is its simplest definition, a strong enthusiasm for technology, especially newer technologies such as computers, the Internet, cell phones and home theater. It is not currently considered a psychological condition or a disorder, but is used in sociology when examining the interaction of individuals with their society, especially contrasted with technophobia. In short, I am a guy who loves computers and the Internet. So basically, my world evolves around these two things which makes it challenging for me to interact with people in the real world and to live up with the norms of society.

I am not a "geek" or "nerd". I try to mingle with people as much as I can to prevent myself from being imprisoned in the virtual reality. But the impact of the Internet revolution has changed the way I live my life, I depend so much on the Internet, I go crazy sometimes if I get disconnected.

Like many of you, I also dream and seek for happiness, but it will not stop right there. I shall dream, explore and discover.
