The world ahead will see ever greater integrations of technology into our day to day lives, and with those innovations will come the need for the truly technologically savvy, those who know their way around this technology driven world and can help those who are perhaps less knowledgeable find their way.

So what, exactly, is a techie? A techie is an individual who is deeply interested in technology and seeing it move forward. When a new tech toy comes out, you can guarantee that it was a techie who designed it, and other techies who will be the first to own it.
