From November 9th through the 19th, several teams from all over the world competed in more than 130 Startup Weekends. A winner from each was crowned and uploaded their videos, and now hope to get your votes. In the Philippines, there was the Startup Weekend in Davao and Cebu, and out of the many teams that joined, “My Startup Academy” emerged as the top winner.

As of now, I mostly work with these three: WordPress, Twitter and Facebook. …and it uncannily spells WTF !
“What the fuck?” (sometimes “whiskey tango foxtrot,” initialism from the NATO phonetic alphabet, used as a euphemism). An expression of disbelief or puzzlement.
WordPress for my blogging requirements. Facebook to interact with a social network of friends, relatives, peers, former classmates and colleagues. Twitter to follow people, groups and organizations that interests me.
So far, they fulfill my needs.
But that’s what I said about Friendster before Facebook sent it packing!
Nerd Venn Diagram: Geek, Dork or Dweeb?
Nerd, Geek and Dork Defined by Diagram This is why I love the internet. It is just a treasure trove of some of the most complex questions, to be found on our universe today…Such as this…Life long curiosity answered!
This is a great ice breaker at any party. I don’t know how explanatory it is nor how accurate, but just explaining these terms with a Venn diagram is in itself geeky or nerdy or something. But it is an excellent attempt to chart the topology of the three traits. What a kick. I feel inspired now to draw a diagram to explain the relationship between real life, virtual reality, dream states, and how they all overlap with obfuscation or memory loss.
The Venn diagram above helps the not so tech-slang savvy navigate the difference between the confusing terms “geek,” “nerd,” “dork,” and “dweeb.” Apparently “geek” is at the intersection of “intelligence” and “obsession” — hey, I’ll take it! Obviously, I don’t think that “geek” is an unflattering term or characteristic. After all — geek is chic, right? or is it the new sexy? Does the word “dweeb” make anyone else think of ’90s-era sitcoms? or the guys that call you a dweeb are from the 50s?
