2008 has now seen the launch of the first Geeknbury festival. In a lonely Surrey field, campers connect with each other face-to-face or via a 2 meg wifi where you are encouraged to let "imaginations to run riot and get creative".
We are off to meet them in Soho, to share ideas and educate each other on the latest social media.
It seems now it is good to be a geek. In fact, it is hard to get by without at least knowing what the latest gadgets and technology are and how they work.
A good example is shown by the populalrity of the latest iphone that saw huge queues outside Regents Street's Apple store and that saw one inividual buy first place in the queue by bidding via eBay. The Playstation 3 is another example of a platform that offers multi-media functions via a console that was previously intended for gamers only.
Not only does this confirm the growing popularity of geekiness, but also that the more convergent the technology, the greater its acceptablility and role in our everyday lives.
To avoid missing out on social media and technology has to offer, check out Geeknbury and add a 'geeky' strand to your DNA.
