Up One Level

Alpha Geek


The most knowledgeable, technically proficient, person in an office, work group, or other, usually non-IT, environment. Born 'fiddlers' and 'tinkerers', they tend to ignore the basic rule of 'If it ain't broke don't fix it' preferring to operate on the basis of 'Fix it, until it is broke'. Such people can be a considerable security risk - like ordinary Geeks, Anoraks, and Tech-heads, - only more so.
