Multi-faceted, multi-talented Pakistani bloggers
Usually people say that techies don’t have a life, they don’t have other interests or talents, they don’t have friends. They are supposedly hermits who hide behind their computer screens because they can’t hack it in the real world. I know this to be totally untrue because I have met so many techies over the past 18 years – a large number of them are wonderful, warm people with a passion for life. They are multi-faceted, talented individuals who have a sense of community and are looking to provide solutions to the world’s problems. Yes they love technology but not to the exclusion of friends and family.
Many of them are activists for various causes that they believe in. They are writers, artists, great chefs, bloggers and some of them even turn to the guitar and the flute as we found out yesterday when we decided to invade T2F at 8:50 pm and wouldn’t leave. We indulged in yummy cold coffee, cupcakes and a bit of kidding around. There were around 16 of us but it was only when the gals (Sana, Anum, Hira and a couple of others) and Jamash had left, that the jamming session began. Here is a clip to show you what you missed:
