GEEK!


schnuder mentioned in his LJ that eWeek posted its "15 Geekiest Vacations" list.

So let's see - I've been to #13 (WorldCon), #10 (National Air & Space Museum), #9 (Spy Museum), #8 (Quark's), #5 (Pennsic), #4 (Star Trek cons), #2 (I think planning to spend the weekend playing City of Heroes counts), and #1 (SDMB get-togethers, among others).

Oh what a geek am I.

Heh, I like the Pennsic one...incidentally, the proliferation of laptops and PDA's (especially with those really bright screens being on at night) is fast turning into a new pet peeve of mine.

Agreed. It's one thing to do it around camp discretely, but it's another to be walking around on your cell phone in broad daylight. I try to limit my cell usage to my tent, or at the very least standing in a pay phone booth, or of course out in Mundania. And if I need to empty my digital camera, I pay the $4 and go to Mystic Mail, behind a curtain.

I've just got #10
I'm a geek, but that is what I do for a living. Not what I do so much for fun. Although I have seen #10. For fun I do "recovery" work and "church" work. My next vacation will likely be GA 2008 in Fort Lauderdale. I can't imagine missing that.

Re: I've just got #10
I've never been to a GA, although I've attended the UUMN conference and Convocation several times in the past, when I was much more active.

I can't believe that Comic Con didn't make the list. That's like Mecca for most geeks.

That's true, and at, what, 100,000 people, that's bigger than Pennsic or any Star Trek con.

Definate bias for WorldCon vs. Dragon*Con.

Speaking of bias, I'm not at Wizard World East today.

Never been to Dragon*Con. Is it good?

And love that icon.

I'd never heard of Quark's. Will have to hit it next time I'm in the area. I'm just sorry that it'll help make Paris Hilton richer.
