Better Know A Group: Geeky Things I Love

May 2 2007 - 3:00pm


Yesterday I shared some fabulous photos Lindsb's good friend took at the "The Art of the Brick" [0] exhibit by Nathan Sawaya at the Lancaster Museum of Art and I realized there are probably thousands of you geeksugar readers who have exciting, geeky photos, stories and tips you want to share with me and your fellow geek fans.

Our shared admiration for all things techie, chic and innovative is the primary reason I started the Geeky Things I Love [1] group, where I hope you readers will divulge all your greatest finds - like this custom designed smoked glass, etched with Darth Vader's image on the side of a popcorn machine.

This is different than just bookmarking geek gear [2] you've found around the internet because it offers a place where you can share images and stories of unusual museum or art exhibits [2], funny gadgets you've found while traveling or even news, reviews and tips I haven't shared with yet. Essentially, I want to know about all the geeky things you've found while trekking the globe, checking out your hometown or cruising the internet.

As always, I'll feature my favorite posts on the geeksugar homepage. To learn how to subscribe to the group post your finds to the Geeky Things I Love,

I know that this long list looks scary, but trust me, once you get the hang of it, it'll be a snap the second time around.
