This week’s Featured Contributor, Technogomzi, really does deserve a royal introduction. Not only is he an amazing Answers.com contributor, but outside of our little wiki world he continues to stand for all things excellent. First off, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence when his thermal power plant idea opened the door to a college internship. Cool (um, hot), huh?
He also possesses a strong ability to deliver the best in any situation and notes that he “measures experience with work not money”. During his college years, he took part in a robotics automation work shop. The project (Electrical Distribution Control System) his team made was acknowledged by the director of the college! Wow! And last, but not least, he firmly believes that smiling is the key to success.
Yep. There’s no shortage of excellence when it comes to this brilliant and dedicated Answers.com contributor. Here’s more:
