National Techies Day
Date When Celebrated : Always October 3
Note: the very first National Teckies Day was held on October 5, 1999. We do not know why or when it was changed to October 3.
On this day, students encouraged to consider a career in Technology. Techies Day is an opportunity to give your friendly technician(s) some well deserved appreciation.
The office technician may be a geek or a nerd. But, when your PC goes down, or gets a virus, that geek is invaluable. He's on top of his trade, and can get your system back up and running faster than you can say "gigabyte".
Not to be left out..... This day is for all technicians, not just computer techies. There are many highly skilled technical jobs out there that demand high quality people oto assess equipment of all kinds. Let's give a big hand and a thanks to all techies, from all fields, on this special day.
Make sure that your techie knows that he, or she is appreciated. Give them a big "TY". Maybe a token gift, or just send an ecard. Taking good care of your Techie will reap you dividends when you need him.
Here's wishing my Techie a very Happy Techies Day. You're the Best!
History and Origin of Techies Day:
This special day originated in 1999 by techies.com and a consortium of government and industry leaders.
Marc Andreesen, CTO of America Online, in alliance with techies.com and other leading like-minded companies including Compaq, FedEx and Information Week, established National Techies Day.
Techies Day was established to address the long-term demand for tech workers.
There is no presidential proclamation, nor any documentation from the U.S. Congress, that would support this as a true "National" day.
