What is a techie?
"Techie is a term, derivative of the word technology, for a person who displays a great, sometimes even obsessive, interest in technology, high-tech devices, and particularly computers. Some techies express a disregard for any technology that could possibly be considered obsolete, even if the technology or process in question might only be considered obsolete within the techie community. Consequently, techies are also often early adopters. With the increased spending power of techies, a few media outlets exist that cater solely to them, most notably Wired, Slashdot, and, while it existed, TechTV. Geeks or nerds are often also considered to be techies; however, the reverse is not necessarily true and more people who would not be considered "geeks" are becoming techies, especially with the advancement of technology in recent years.

"Techie" is also used as a nickname (without pejorative connotations) for a student from a university with the name "Technology" in its title, such as Caltech, Georgia Tech, MIT, IIT,FIT and Virginia Tech."

"Techie" (slang) is also a generalized occupational title for stagehands, electricians, carpenters or other professional Stage Technicians in the Theatre and Film Industries."

"In the recent years "Techie" slang is most commonly attached with professionals in the Information Technology sector which is the worlds most higly appreciated profession in terms of its financial returns for an individual and social status and large number of professionals in this job area. Mostly anyone with any designation like Software Engineer, Analyst, Project Manager, General Manager, Line Of Business Head, and all will be generally grouped under "Techie" label in the IT industry."
