Le Geek C'est Chic!

“The word geek is a slang term for odd or non-mainstream people, with different connotations ranging from "a computer expert or enthusiast" to "a person heavily interested in a hobby", with a general pejorative meaning of "a peculiar or otherwise dislikable person, esp[ecially] one who is perceived to be overly intellectual" [Wikipedia], and of course, thick glasses. However, nowadays the word “geek” has also been used to describe someone who’s extremely good .Geek is the New Rock star. To introduce this new meaning of the word “geek”, Online Collaborative launched the event GEEKFEST Beirut 5.0, held on July 5, 8:00 PM -THE ALLAWAY, Gemmayze

Pilot For One Minute!

I love traveling and I also like to take pictures on the plane, today I met the MEA flight crew; Pilots and flight attendants, really great team. I asked the pilot to enter the cabin and take pictures from up above, and guess what he accepted! It was really a great opportunity to take a small video of my flight from the pilots cabin! It was a great experience that I will never forget! This is the first time I travel with the MEA, and I really enjoyed it, definitely my next flight will be with them if I can enjoy this experience again ! Now ladies and gentlemen have a safe flight!
