Our Information Technology division is world class! To help the rest of our company know all that they do to contribute to our success, they held a Geek Expo today. I got a pocket protector to show for my efforts.
Yes, I visited all the booths, learned quite a bit about application architecture, database administration, technology procurement, service levels, capacity management.
But I was most captivated by the PIE. Apple pie. Well, actually one department created a clever TLA (three-letter-acronym) to tell the world that they help us Protect, Innovate, and Empower. Very creative. In keeping with their theme, they wore chef aprons and toques and served slices of pie (and the crust was flakey and yummy).
Oh yeah, like all other attendees, I was entered into a drawing to win a Nintendo Wii, Blackberry Pearl, and other cool geek prizes. Doesn’t it make sense that a winner at the Geek Expo ought to be someone with “Gee” in his name? (hint-hint to the prize ticket puller.)
