Perhaps I’m just a weenie, but I’m a sucker for these “how big a geek are you?” online quizzes. I think there’re some interesting things to take away from many of the results. For example, I scored 209 on the following quiz. What I found interesting in this particular quiz was the fact that nearly 50% of the people that took it also scored in the “Digital Ace” category.
This supports my belief that people are a lot more tech savvy than many of the industry marketeers would have us think (or at least the makers of this quiz).
I’m of the mind that new products need to take user sophistication into consideration when spec’ing their new project out rather than catering to the lowest common denominator.
Yes, indeed there are a lot of newbees, but there’re also a heck of a lot of sophisticated users out there as well. Let’s make sure that they’re not left out in the cold…
