Celebrate your geek – #auteched is kicking off in less than a week

I probably look forward to this time of year more than any other. It’s time for Microsoft Tech.Ed Australia 2011 (30th of August – 2nd of September) and this year we’re really going to celebrate being a Geek.

If nothing else, i’m a Geek (with a capital G that is)…No, not the circus freak type (ok, that’s debatable i agree).

geek [giːk]

n Slang

1. a boring and unattractive social misfit
2. a person who is preoccupied with or very
knowledgeable about computing

3.a degenerate

[probably variant of Scottish geck fool, from Middle
Low German geck]
geeky  adj//

So, back to Tech.Ed – this year we’re celebrating Geeks and the Chief Geek is hosting the keynote – that’s right, Adam Spencer (co-host of ABC’s Sleek Geeks) is hosting the keynote! Sweet!

And it’s not stopping there either! Jarod Green (yes, THAT Jarod Green, creator of Beached Az) is going to be at the keynote too!
