Why am I a Technologist?

As anyone who knows me, or is socially connected to me knows I am either Robert Bleattler Technologist, or The Epicurean Technologist. I have many people ask me, why do you call yourself “technologist”?

Well its pretty simple really, I could call myself an IT guy, or a SysAdmin, or any of the other renditions of the same, but I am a little more than that. From an early age I wanted to know how things worked and why they worked, and what made them NOT work. I spent many hours in the library reading everything I could find on electrical and computer systems. I taught myself using books and diagrams to fix almost anything that could break, It was a natural thing as my maternal grandfather had this same talent. If you Google the definition of technologist, there are many different meanings, but the below are the ones that are relevant to this article:

Technologist

a person who uses scientific knowledge to solve practical problems

a person trained to design and construct machines

a person who designs and writes and tests computer programs

a person trained in practical applications of the theory of electricity

As I am a person who does all of the above, I therefore conclude that I am a Technologist and not just a system admin. I truly enjoy a good challenge, and believe there is no obstacle that cannot be overcome. I go above the average system admin in the sense that I think like a machine, using logic first and working back from that. Believe me I have seen some strange occurrences in my career that seem to defy common logic, but when looked at from a different perspective seems to make sense. Everything we do depends on Technology, and if that technology fails I am the man to call!

All of this together is what make me a Technologist as opposed to “THE IT GUY”.

Eyes wide shut

The Day it drags the words of fire
The evil pentance false desire
The water boils the lies that sting
Who knew the drought one heart could bring

Time a sentence procured of lust
Brought around, turn to dust
Blinded by the wounded heart
Betrayal served best apart

The day it leaves an ice cold trail
True hidden hatred, behind veil
The nightime brings the dark uncut
Waking up with eyes wide shut

Eyes Wide Shut
