How can I learn more about Computer Hardware?

Well, I know more than the average computer user knows about computers, but I think my knowledge about hardware is subjacent. I have searched the web and the things I find are pretty out-dated. I have read a forum post, and it said to read the "stickies" on top of the forum. What are the stickies?

I want to be a Computer Engineer when I grow up (I am 13). I know a little about hardware, some security, how to build a computer, what hardware does, a computer algorithm, how a computer works, and some virus removal. I also know some computer acronyms and their meanings, I am sure that it will be helpful some day.

I am also a Top Contributor on Yahoo Answers on Computer and Internet security.

TL;DR How can I learn more about computer hardware and/or computer-related things.

  1. Just look around. This website is great for learning stuff if you just scroll through the forum posts. Also, despite how weird this may sound, there are quite a lot of good videos on Youtube that are informative. Books are pointless since they get outdated so quickly, but if you search hard enough, there are a lot of great sources on the internet. is another one of them.

    READ and explore all that you can. Talk to as many people as you can. There are lots of great books, yeah, I said books too and of course the web which has well, everything. Take technology courses in school. Build as many PCs as you can. When you are a bit older get a part time job in the tech field. Volunteer and job shadow.
