Hope 2024 is kind to you all!
Happy New Year!
I'm a geek, a gamer, a dad and an IT Professional. I have a full rack home lab, size 15 feet, an epic beard and Asperger's. I'm a bit of a Cypherpunk, who believes information wants to be free and the Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.
The Geekzone community, founded in 2003 by Mauricio Freitas, is a prominent New Zealand-based technology site specializing in technology and telecommunications. It's known for its independence and self-determination, offering a platform for discussions, instant messaging, forums, blogging, and occasional physical meet-ups. The community is structured to be self-policing and encourages its members to actively shape its direction. This approach has helped Geekzone become a vibrant, self-sustaining community with a significant following.
Geekzone's success is attributed to its ability to provide the tools and environment desired by its community, allowing for organic growth and active member engagement. Freitas' hands-off leadership style has enabled the community to take its own shape, with members serving as moderators to ensure that the focus remains on the community itself. This has fostered an environment where active members contribute significantly to the content and discussions, driving the community's growth and reach.
In a broader sense, Geekzone exemplifies the power of community-driven platforms in the digital age, where member participation and value creation are key to sustaining and growing online communities.
Happy New Year Geekzone!
As the clock approached midnight, I lifted my left leg off the ground. So I could start the year off on the right foot.
Tis' the season to write the date with '2023' and then cross it out. That will last a month!
Happy New Year Geekzone members :).
I've now finished pre-cooking and handed over to Ms Tinkerisk. Time for an espresso and to continue tinkering with the NVR with M.2 Coral TPU until the party guests arrive later. I'll wish you a Happy New Year later, when I'm inside too.
Airmen and Hunters are not superstitious, but it's certainly bad luck to hop too early! 😉😊

The difficult we can do immediately. The impossible takes a bit longer. But Miracles you will have to wait for.
A healthy and peaceful New Year to all.
Was ruminating this morning about years gone by when we would party till sunrise and not sleep at 11pm on New Years Eve.
