Celebrating ‘National Techie Day’ With Downtown Computer

DULUTH, Minn. — There’s no better time than now to pursue a career in technology.

So today we are celebrating “National Techie Day.”

Whether it’s desktop PCs, laptops, tablets, or smart phones, computers are a huge part of our everyday lives.

But how much do we really know about these devices?

We spoke to the Nick Mancini, the general manager at Downtown Computer in Duluth, who says in today’s world it’s becoming more and more important to know a tech expert.

“We’re all exposed to technology and we feel like we should have some understanding of it because we use it every day,” Mancini said.  “But it’s so complicated that it really does take a full time individual to fully understand how a lot of these things are working.”

He also says that as our devices get smaller and more portable, people are more connected to their devices than ever before.

“The computer or your phone or tablet, they’re really just a window into the world of the Cloud,” Mancini said.  “Using all the apps and services and things that aren’t necessarily in your computer anymore.”

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics says that by the year 2020, employment in all computer occupations is expected to increase by more than twenty percent.
