Fan with a major interest in technology, especially do it yourself technology. The word is sometimes heard outside sf fandom, in computer culture and maybe other places ("...I'm a peeping tom techie with x ray eyes," Timbuk3). Some have opined that mundanes use the term as a pejorative. Also used for those who run the 'tech' for a convention – sound and lighting systems, film and video programs,etc.
