I’ll admit it, I’m a geek. Pretty much all of my friends are geeks, too. We’re not ashamed. We wear our geekiness with pride! Maybe it’s an evolution over time that geeks are the new cool, or maybe it is just the tech-happy bubble in which we live. Either way, I’m happy to be in Seattle where geeks are not only welcome, but they are celebrated!
This week is the very first Seattle Geek Week. I know, I know, EVERY week is kind of geek week in Seattle… but this is another chance to attend a variety of engaging and interactive events all geared to the geek in all of us! I know I’ll be exhausted by the end, but it will be one hell of a week!
My top picks for the week are:
- Tuesday, 8/17 at 6pm – SMC Seattle with The Oatmeal
- Wednesday, 8/18 at 7pm – Whrrl BBQ and viewing of “Life in Perpetual Beta”
- Thursday, 8/19 at 4:30pm – TechCafe Presents
- Thursday, 8/19 at 7pm – Gigs4Good benefit for Seattle Works featuring Alex Mercier and Bekker
- Friday, 8/20 and Saturday, 8/21 – Gnomedex
But of course, the BEST event will be the Seattle Geek Week TechKaraoke event at Hula Hula on Friday, August 20! (Of course, I might be biased!) I hope all geeks will come rock the mic with us!
So, what will you be attending during Seattle Geek Week? Let me know in the comments!
