Right now, there’s one helluva geek party going on in Canada: the first-ever Geekfest Montréal. One of the organizers, Debbie Rouleau, contacted me about using the Geek Test in one of their activities to determine the “Geek du Geek”—the Geek of all French Canadian Geeks. Of course I said oui.
(Luckily we were communicating in English. I know enough French to understand the Geekfest website, but speaking or writing it c’est trés difficile.)
I’m looking forward to hearing about how it all went and who the Geek du Geek ends up being. I’ve promised to profile him or her on this very blog, so hopefully I’ll get that up this week. And hopefully they’ll have another Geekfest next year so that I can at least dream of going! It’s about time I finally visited my dad’s ancestral homeland, anyway. Where I will make a point of trying poutine.
