The Great Geek Challenge Returns!

After the amazing success of the Great Geek Challenge at Lotusphere 2011, the Nerd Girls are delighted to throw down the gauntlet once more and announce the Great Geek Challenge 2012 .  Again we challenge you to come and test your geek knowledge on Tuesday evening at the Fountain Restaurant.  Bring your own team or just sit and join a table. Last year's rounds included "Sci Fi TV Series" , "Comics" , "Science" and "Lotus History" and were WAY too hard judging by many of the scores :-)

This year we'll again have spot questions and spot prizes (titanium spork anyone?) as well as a Great Geek Trophy hand crafted and lovingly brought all the way from Anguilla.  This year's hosts Paul Mooney and Carl Tyler will be handing off question duties during the night and our judging team of Tom Duff, Marie Scott and Joni Snyder will be frantically totalling up each round.  I'll be the one running around tables handing out and collecting quizzes, oh and maybe a few spot questions and prizes.

This year for those of you who want to get some practice in early or who aren't going to Lotusphere at all (and why not?) we hope to have an online / mobile challenge running for prizes during December courtesy of Kathy Brown and her amazing mobile development toolset.  More on that soon.

In the meantime we need someone to help us pay for all that free food and drink so if you're interested in sponsoring this year (and this is entirely not for profit) then please email info@greatgeekchallenge.com for more information.

Lotusphere is off and running - are you as excited as I am?
