Geek stuff from movies, t.v., comics, videogames, and more from the coolest half geek in the room.

Wil Wheaton Secretary of Geek Affairs!!! held a competition in honor of our “first geek president” Barak Obama. The goal was to appoint a Secretary of Geek Affairs to the cabanit. What are the duties of this prestigious position you may ask? Well, I’ll let the good folks at Paul and Storm answer that:

Only time will tell. Maybe they’ll just be a figurehead, sent to represent the government at cons, beta releases, and gaming tournaments across the country. Or perhaps they’ll provide a larger vision for greater geekdom, encouraging and fostering the careers, hobbies, and memes that are the lifeblood of our nation.

But in general terms,

  1. Advise the POTUS on matters concerning, affecting, and/or of interest to geeks (as well as nerds and similar constituencies);
  2. Implement POTUS policies generated by first responsibility; and
  3. Act as liaison on POTUS’ behalf between the greater U.S. geek community and other national and international stakeholders.
  4. Not required to be a U.S. citizen, because we say so.

Sounds cool. And who is the person deemed most qualified? Wil Wheaton of course!

New SecGeek

He happens to be my Geek idol. I grew up wishing Wesley Crusher was my big brother. No offence to my real brother but Weasly was more of a geek like me.

I wonder if the new SecGeek needs any aids? Hey, Wil if you do you’ll let me know right?
