The English Learners' Blog

A blog for English learners and their teachers everywhere, initiated in 2010 with the contribution of students from the Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland. More about me on the On-line Profile below. Welcome!

Geek Style

The New Web team are starting a fortnightly series of posts giving you the heads up on interesting upcoming events in the media and technology space. Make sure you visit TNW before you decide to buy a ticket to an event in this category. Apart from this, you can follow the channels, regions and countries this site offers info from, to get to the latest scoops in the new media.

I selected for you a fragment from the hilarious GeekStyle series available on the New Web site. Enjoy your reading and if it whets your appetite for more, help yourselves by clicking this link.

This weeks (anonymous) question is about body odor: “Dear GeekStyle, I’m a well adjusted geek working at a medium sized technology start-up. My co-workers are nice and friendly and in my role as intermediary I speak to everybody in the company about our technology roadmap. No problem so far. My experience however is that inside the geek offices my body odor (a badge of honor after pulling an olnighter) is accepted and expected. Outside of my geekcircle it seems to be frowned upon. What do I do?”

Dear anonymous geek, body odor could be a symptom of being nervous or anxious. What causes your anxiety around the office? Your body odor? Aha! You are stuck in an endless loop! Feel less insecure about your sweat glands and exit this loop. In fact: go overboard and slap some extra water on your face before you make your rounds. Alternatively stock up on some extra deodorant and invest in a few extra T-Shirts. In most cases it will be the shirt that stinks, not the geek.

Yes, we also do questions. Have a geek style question you want to have answered? Don’t want to bother your mother? Just ask GeekStyle.
