Hi, I’m snipe! As a geek, I have always loved celebrating geek holidays, in whatever way some of them can be celebrated, even if that just means 140-characters of rejoicing on Twitter.
It’s a wonderful time to be a geek. We’re (almost) cool now, and every day, creative people are coming up with new ways to encourage learning and critical thinking in unique and creative ways. You should celebrate your geekiness every day, but some days deserve special attention.
And because I have a neurotic need to create websites, I put together Geek Days to help me (and hopefully you) keep track of your favorite geek holidays.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a science geek, a computer geek, a math geek, gamer geek, or any other kind of geek – there’s a holiday for you.
This site is very much a work in progress, but I’m working hard to get as many geek holidays listed as quickly as I can.
