Last February Tod Maffin’s photo outranked one of me in a bikini on my Flickr photo stream. This year, he was nominated as one of Wired’s “Sexiest Geeks of 2007“.
Welcome to the third annual Wired News Sexiest Geeks contest! Every year, we nominate the smartest, sexiest and most Wired men and women of the year… …Remember, geeks are not just computer nerds. They’re dedicated to the point of being obsessed, so smart they scare you, and hot in a possibly undefinable way. We know you know what we mean. [Wired]
Luckily, someone found me worthy (and geeky enough) to nominate me as well, which is pretty freakin’ cool.
As an erstwhile and once again Vancouver resident, Rebecca Bollwitt studiously documents the goings-on of the city’s burgeoning metropolitan and digerati scenes. As a result she’s developed quite a following among the local geek crowd, and bloggers in general. Her smart and sassy writing style combined with her penchant for wearing way-too small geek shirts makes Miss604 a must-read, and her honest-to-god technology credentials give her the chops to go a few rounds with the best of ’em.

If I would have known I would have posted that photo of me in a g-string and a bra sitting on a zebra-printed bed. Oh wait, that’s already been done by the G4 chick. Regardless, I think the fact that folks think I’m a smart and computer-savvy cookie means more than anything.
If you feel like voting for me (or Tod), click the links above. I have no idea if there’s even anything to be won, but the incoming link love is pretty great now I need some new geeky message t-shirts eh.
Update: Apparently voting is still open and I’m in still in the Top 25, fun!
