Net Success Interviews 

 

Interviews with 40 successful CEOís / Founders of Revolutionary Internet Companies

 www.Geek.com

 

 

All of the writers at Geek.com have owned their own computer for at least 15 years and most of the writers work or have worked at technology companies as programmers, network managers, quality assurance specialists, technical support staff, Web developers, or consultants.

 

We interview the founder and Chief Geek, Joel Evans, to find out more.

 

 

Your name:                         Joel Evans

 

Position / title:                   Chief Geek / Founder

 

Company name:                Geek.com


Website:                          

 

Geek.com is the main site with JobGeek, GameGeek, PDAGeek, ChipGeek, and others as the off shoots.

 

 

Your company / website vision statement / goal:
 

The online resource for technology professionals and enthusiasts. Our goal is to be viewed each day by people passionate about technology.


What you sell / services you offer (brief description of your company):

We provide an online resource for technology enthusiasts and professionals. This includes daily technology news with industry based opinions on each news item, reviews of the hottest products, specific sections dedicated to PDAs, processors and games, buying and building guides for PCs, a searchable technical glossary, and more. All of our content is ORIGINAL and written and updated daily.

 

Have you always wanted to run your own business?
 

Yes. It has been a passion of mine since I was young. There's nothing quite like seeing your own creation blossom into a successful business that can afford your lifestyle.

 

What were some of your previous jobs / companies?

I had started a candy business, a music business, and a variety of other things. I've also spent a good portion of my career working for other companies as a technical support person, a database analyst, various management positions, and a variety of computer consulting endeavors. 

 

I've been told for years by many successful entrepreneurs that the best thing to do is to go to work for someone else and learn and make mistakes on their payroll. Having come back and forth into the labor force I can fully appreciate the advice.

 

Have you got any qualifications? Please tell us about yourself academically?

I have a bachelors in broadcast television and communications and have been tinkering with computers and technology since I was young.


How / when did the idea of your website / company come about?
 

Geek.com was born out of necessity. We founded it back in 1996 when the Web was not what it is today.

 

It took far too long to find information on a specific company. I took my passion for what I wanted to see on the web and joined forces with a friend, Rob Hughes. We built a site that we wanted to see and thankfully, others wanted to see it, too.  We also wanted to look professional so I enlisted the help of my brother, Sam Evans, as our chief editor to make sure that our writing was top notch.

 

If you could give readers of this book one piece of advice what would it be?
