[GAS] Contest: Who's the Sexiest Geek of 2006?

Yep, 2006 is almost over, and since this blog is all about the world of technology and sexy geeks, we thought that starting a contest to determine who's the sexiest geek of 2006 would be a fabulous way to end the year.

Here are the basic rules:

  • Leave your nomination in the comments section of this post. You can nominate yourself or someone else;
  • Only 1 nomination per participant (If you nominate someone else, you obviously cannot win!);
  • The nominated person has to have accomplished something of worth on the web in the past year;
  • Explain why this person should be picked and provide a link to his blog/site.
Nominations are starting today and will last for a total of 7 days. After this period, the [GAS] team will pick their 5 favorite entries on which you, the readers, will vote to determine the winner.

The prize? $100 deposited to the winner's Paypal account or to spend in any shop that supports Paypal. If the lucky person doesn't want the money, he/she can choose to donate it to his/her charity of choice.

Let the nominations begin!

Edit: The nomination period is now over.

If you want to be noticed when the [GAS] team picks the top 5 nominees, just take a few seconds of your time and subscribe to our feed!


  • Leah Culver FTW. Y'all blogged about her a little while back. She ran the MacBook Pro etching deal to afford the computer. She also works for Instructables so I think she qualifies.

  • I nominate Xeni Jardin of the Boingboing crew.

    She is incredibly intelligent, very attractive, and passionate about issues in the world of tech and humanity that actually matter.

    That and her name is Xeni, do you need more reason?

  • I nominate my favourite nerdbird Cat James, known online as HMTheCat. Where else can a geek find someone who can not only code CSS/PHP like this; whilst looking like this; or even this! (check out the invitations, and yes, she did the slideshow too).

  • I nominate Violet Blue.

    From her blog:

    I'm Violet Blue -- hardworking author and educator on sexual pleasure and health, erotica editor, sex podcaster, vlogger, porn reviewer, fetish model and machine artist. I'm the award-winning, best-selling author/editor of over a dozen sex books with translations in four languages. I lecture at UC's and community teaching institutions; the San Francisco Chronicle sex columnist; a Metblogs SF author; a Geek Entertainment TV correspondent and Fleshbot contributor. I'm a San Francisco native and human blog. I am a Dorkbot presenter and ten year vet at Survival Research Laboratories, where we produce the most dangerous robotic shows on earth: I do everything with the machines from fabrication and mechanics to machine operation. My podcast is the notorious Open Source Sex. I am not a porn performer. Read my sexblo.gs self-interview. I am: violet at tinynibbles dot com

    So to sum it up: She educates about sex, she is freaking hot, AND she builds killer robots.

  • I can't believe no one has put Maddox down, my god the man has the 5,000 some most popular website ever over numerous compaines including Pepsi & KFC just to name a few and what makes this so incredible is he never used any money of his to promote it, it is all by word of mouth.

    This past year he was asked to write a book and he wrote it and had a very successful book tour and his book was on the New York Times Best Seller.

    To not of nominated him is a travesty... His website is The Best Page in the Universe

  • I'd have to nominate Kari Byron for the sexiest geek of 2006. I can't believe that this girl is so hot yet still a, "geek".


    For those of you who don't know who Kari Byron is, she's one of the assistants on the Discovery Channel show, Mythbusters.
