This 'How Geeky Are You?' quiz
illustrates how geekdom today means something completely different from what it used to. Out with unwashed hair and actually programming, in with mindless purchase of consumer goods.

Geekroom contest 2002.
[this is a mirror, the site was recently slashdotted] They say these are the best
geekrooms; to me they seem to fall somewhere between somewhere between quintessential, and epitome-of. Does your computing take over a significant chunk of your space? A room? A nook? What do Mefites' geek lairs look like?

Don't let the URL fool you,
it's completely work safe, and yet oh so naughty
. I wish more sites would do this. It would lead to mass confusion, and last I heard, that's the next big monkey-making trend.

A pickup bar for geeks.
60 TV cameras on the ceiling can be controlled by bar patrons from stations all over the bar, to snoop on other people. See someone you like? Send 'em an email; and maybe if you hit it off you can walk across the bar and actually talk to them.

It didn't last... and the article sheds some lights on the probable reasons.

In a perfect world
, this would be in mass production. In black. With an espresso machine. I'm surprised I haven't heard of this earlier; most good, respectable geeks that I know would most likely kill for one of these.
