Got Otaku?

According to Seth Godin in the book Purple Cow, Otaku is something thats more than a hobby but little less than an Obsession. Its a Japanese word that has found its way into the English vocabulary, pretty soon it’ll be in all those major dictionary’s, it’ll be like the Nintendo and Karaoke that we have now come to know, anyways, i digress. I wake up come to work and i come online, its a part of my job but when i do its not because i have to, its because i want to, not to check my mail, or sign in to messenger (although they are a part of my routine) but mainly to write my crap in my web log. I leave work and go home and guess what i do? I go online and add more crap, fine tune this, fine tune that and maybe do other minor things online.

So is this my otaku? am i taking my hobby towards the Obsession? Before this it was facebook then i got tired of that and WordPress took its place. I guess my otaku shifts as i lose interest, who knows maybe this will stick, ill probably end up living and dying at the computer who knows. After all how hard can it be to keep writing crap?

I’m sure we all have an Otaku, what’s yours?


I am a mystery wrapped in a riddle, seen by all known by few, The one always apart in company yet never alone in solitude.
