Reducing security risks from open source software

That's right! It's not brand new or nuffin but it's the first we've heard of it - it's The Sexiest Geek Alive!.

Here's the deal: You have to be a geek. You need to live in the States. Go to the site above and register yourself for the competition. There you will be thrown a few geek-type questions like who's the best Star Trek captain?

What does PCMCIA stand for? What's an Osborne? Then: have you ever auctioned something on eBay? Have you ever turned off the phone and accepted only emails? And so on and so forth.

Then say why you should be in the sexiest geek alive contest (unlimited words) and an esteemed board of judges will select a short list. If you're lucky, through to the big final you go to be voted on by your fellow geeks.

If you win, the world is your oyster (well you may appear on Good Morning America and The Montel Williams Show - like this year's winner, Tony Northrup).

What are you waiting for? You've only got 'til the first of next month to enter. Good luck!
