Jack Zhang, founder of GeekPark says that the concept of ‘geek’ 极客 has transformed over time in China, from socially awkward kids into coding and computer games, to 'super cool inspiring people'. Geeks are now enjoying unique success by using the internet and technological innovation to create great things for the future.
Debby Ng sat down with Jack to discuss the evolution of the ‘geek’ term, why he’s bringing the concept to CAMP, and what the cancellation of ‘The Big Bang Theory’ in China will mean for the geek community.
