Although this year’s Techie Day, an annual celebration to recognize the world’s gurus who keep things running, fell on a Saturday, we at Bomgar wanted to take a brief moment to make sure you know—we love techies!

For all the unheralded efforts that keep users working seamlessly with devices and systems and for maintaining the technology that business depends on, we salute you, techies of the world. We’re fortunate to be a company built on the guiding philosophy that connecting people and technology securely can strengthen a business.

Without our techies, this wouldn’t be possible. And we enjoy each day of collaborating with our technical counterparts across our thousands of customers worldwide.

Not only are we grateful for our current techies, but Techie Day is also recognized to encourage students to learn more about a career in technology and to address the need for qualified technology workers. So to all you future techies – keep pursuing your dreams!

To help celebrate, we thought we’d highlight a few famous quotes about how technology, for better or worse, shapes the way we live:

  • Technology is anything that wasn’t around when you were born. – Alan Kay (computer scientist)
  • We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that works. – Douglas Adams (author)
  • Any sufficiently advanced technology is equivalent to magic. – Arthur C. Clarke (science fiction author)
  • There is no reason for any individual to have a computer in his home – Ken Olsen (founder of minicomputer company DEC)
  • Mr. Watson, come here – I want to see you. – Alexander Graham Bell (inventor of the telephone)

(Click on this Forbes article and this Technologizer article for more quotes!)

Once again – happy belated Techie Day to all the sys admins, IT support reps, IT managers and CIOs – and everyone in between.
