Chic Meets Geek

Are you a geek living / working in the San Francisco Bay area? Even if you’re not there, perhaps you know someone who is? Be sure to let them know of the opportunity to be sponsored to attend this geeky chic’y evening event. You’ll rub shoulders with people you’d otherwise likely never meet in real life!

Chic Meets Geek is a gathering of two different groups in one room to inspire, share, and connect through a panel of geek and chic influential leaders to talk about their inspirational background. A nonprofit beneficiary is highlighted at every event and themed around the speaker panelists’ expertise to bridge the gap. The night is a user experience. The event presents distinct elements found at a red carpet gala and tech conference in one room. The event challenges the attendees with thought-provoking ideas and situations, in order to inspire good.

If you meet the requirements and live in the San Fran area, why not apply for a free event pass? I’ll be sending ten of you to this event by paying for the ticket. Any other expenses are up to you to cover.

The speakers for the event this year are a pretty cool mix of both chic people and geek people. You’ll find a fashion designer from Project Runway, a dancer from MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew, a San Francisco Philanthropist, and the CEO of Serena and Lily.

During the evening’s event, you’ll listen to the speaker presentations, mingle with them and other attendees, participate (if you choose) in a silent auction and attend a runway fashion show. The event runs only five hours… so it won’t tie up an entire day (or more!).

Again, I can only give away ten passes to this event. You need to submit your request by Wednesday at 1p.m. PST.

What was the First / Last Movie you saw in a Theater?

What was the first movie you ever saw in a movie theater? For me, I remember watching The Rescuers at a drive-in when I was a kid. I’ve been going to movie theaters all my life, even still today. Even though I have excellent home equipment to watch from the comfort of my couch, there’s still a place for the movie theater. There needs to be some changes, yes. And the cost? Don’t get me started there.

I talked to my chat room, and asked them what their thoughts are as to what movie theaters need to be like for the future. Here is what they came up with:

  • Free food! We know that’s how they make their money, but maybe they can come up with other ways to make money. I mean seriously. Bring on the popcorn dripping butter! Why not trying free popcorn or soda night?
  • Discount licensing. Imagine if you went to a movie and you take your stub… and use it to buy that DVD, or be able to download it. Your ticket would entitle to you to a discount.
  • Aroma and audience ambiance That would likely get me to go to the theater for that kind of experience.
  • Force-feedback seats. How cool would that be? The only feedback I get on my seat is when I move it around. Bringing the movie off the screen and into the audience is something that would be really cool.
  • Interaction! Let the audience choose their own ending. The audience could create a noise level or push a button to choose how they would like to see the movie end.

Excellent Movie-Related Deals!

25 More Seats at Gnomedex

If you wanted to “do” Gnomedex this year, I’d recommend getting your ticket now (as in today, immediately). I’ve been crunching the numbers, and it seems we have around 25 more seats available in the main hall. Once we pass this number, we’re officially SOLD OUT. We will once again open up the Cove rooms for participants at the same price, but if you wanted to be in the thick of things – you’ll want to be the main room. FWIW, last year’s Cove Gnomedexers had a great time and many of them have already signed up for Gnomedex 6.0.
