What warms the cockles more than Geeks in Love?
Yes, fellow Netizens, Valentine’s Day is almost here, and some of us geeks are still deciding how best to express our love for our better halves.
Roses and chocolates? Pretty old school.
No – we’re holding out for something really epic that says, if not “I am an alpha geek”, then at least “you have the QR code to my inner domain.”
For the beta-baby who stole your heart, how about a monthly subscription to LootCrate, which will deliver to your door the latest, funnest products, such as a Minecraft 2014 calendar or a Star Wars Galactic phrase book?
If he is dapper grey matter – who under the age of 50 wears French cuffs? – you can buy a pair of silver cufflinks that disguise a USB with 2GB of storage and also serve as a wifi hotspot. He’ll never be out of touch again.
Speaking of wearable tech, for her you can buy geektastic Bluetooth smart jewelry, say, a necklace or earrings that light up when she gets a phone message.
Or you can reinforce your synchronicity with a social network for two.
But the most awesome gift for your sweet geek would be a domain name, such as ILoveRipley.com or BenedictLoves.me. Even better would be a website in a new generic top-level domain.
That would certainly cement your geek chops. Imagine:
Let your inner geek run amok. Or, as Lemon Demon sings it:
When they see us on the street, they wish that they were geeks in love.
And when they hear us trick-or-treat, they wish that they were geeks in love.
As we lock arms and skip away, they wish that they were geeks in love.
And you can almost hear them say they wish that they were geeks in love.
Make it so.
