Hello everyone and welcome to my Above Average Insight…erm…site. My name is Kevin, and knowledge about the world around me has always been a strong focus in my life ever since I was a kid when I found myself trying to teach myself about computers and technology.
Being a kid born in the 1980s at the beginning of the Information Age, I was rapidly exposed to constant stimuli such as new video games, PCs, the internet in general, and more, resulting in a constant hunger for new knowledge to keep myself on the bleeding edge of life.
Now I want to give back.
Over the years I’ve learned about a wealth of what some may consider “useless knowledge”, but I stand firm that all knowledge is useful to someone, somewhere.
A Quick Story About My Evolution.
I have a brother that is 10 years older than me, born in the 70s, and in my younger days I was always very interested in watching him play video games on the Atari and Nintendo, though we didn’t own the latter ourselves until I was five years old.
As technology started to advance more rapidly, I was exposed to almost every game system along the way, eventually leading me to discover the Personal Computer and the internet.
The internet in mid-1990’s became an addiction, though I was too young to realize.
I would always be looking for ways to get on the internet, despite not having a PC at home, let along an internet connection. I would go to friends’ houses and completely take over their computer, attempting to create my own websites about nothing in particular.
Knowledge Is Power.
With great power comes great responsibility. Or, at least, that’s what at least one super hero movie told me. I’ve always found myself sharing my knowledge and experience with those around me, learning from those that have knowledge of their own while also imparting what I can onto them.
I consider myself an average guy, but I am regularly reminded that I am a bit more than that and have the potential to help others who are at a similar place in their lives. I know a little about a lot of things, and am always eager to share what I know and learn more along the way.
Much of the content that I am going to be discussing here will cover an array of topics, not always centered around any one subject. I’m new to the blogging world, but I’ve always had a lot to say about a lot of things so it only makes sense to start sharing my opinions with the world.
Knowledge is power and I am responsible for sharing that power.
My Time Could Be Your Money.
I’ve spent a lot of time researching various subjects and I want to share what I’ve learned with you to save you some time that I’ve had to spend to learn everything I know. Ultimately, your own experience is the best teacher but I can tell you from experience that it pays to have a friend with insight.
Beginning investors, video game geeks, new parents; the sky is the limit. They say that time is money, so I hope I can save you a bit of both.
So have a look around and if you ever need a hand, have any questions or feedback, please feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
