Last year when I was interviewing Max Levchin, co-founder of Paypal, I asked him “do you think you are still a geek” after being so successful, and his remarks is still fresh in my memory. He said that “Once a geek, forever a geek.” And geek isn’t just confine to top-notch programmer any more; it should be that kind of spirit that everyone in the internet business possesses. Chinese internet calls for innovation, there’s more waiting to be changed by the geeks.

People who are no stranger to Chinese internet business should have the feeling that, there is always so much going on in Beijing with plenty of meetups, conferences and so on. Shanghai seems lacks behind a little bit. Indeed, Shanghai needs more opportunities for internet peers to share and network. As an independent tech media that covers Chinese internet area, TechNode has always been active in hosting or co-hosting bunch of events. What we are trying to do is to help building up the internet ecosystem.

That’s why we decide to venture into this, to organize the GeekWeek@Shanghai series of events with Shanghai Yangpu Technology Center, Cyzone and some other Shanghai-based web events organizers. In the week starting July 22, we will co-creat a fantastic week, hoping to make more noise and attract more attention to Shanghai internet business.
