Late Night Geek

posted 8 Feb 2004, 10PM | 8 Comments

Last night at Mel's Diner in Hollywood, my friend Leonard set a new high water mark for Personal Geekdom that impressed me. As a group of us sat around the table, snacking and enjoying alcohol-tempered conversation, I looked over to see Leonard checking the referrer logs for his weblog on his Treo 600 pda/phone. And because the overhead lights were bright, he was holding it inside the glare-free cavity of his Electronic Frontier Foundation baseball cap. A priceless moment.

Exactly 5 things are geek about this:

1. Unnecessary use of tech devices during late night, post bar socializing.
2. The Treo 600 PDA/Phone is itself a geeky device.
3. Using this device to browse the web.
4. Browsing the web for your weblog REFERER logs, which only a geek would care about.
5. An EFF hat? Who owns an EFF hat?

Do any of ya'll ever get laid...and is techi-sex even really worth taking of your clothes and risking losing a button?

biznitch, what is this techi-sex you refer to? it sounds intriguing. except for the button losing part.
