The competition to find the sexiest geek alive is on again. We wrote about the competition last year - just catching the end of it - but this time it's bigger and better than ever.

Following last year's success - where Tony Northrup won, was crowned and then did the chat-show circuit - the show will now be running heats at various IT conferences all over the States, with the final taking place on 21 June in San Jose.

The contest does what Miss World promised it would and bases choice of finalists not only on looks but also brains. Thus, to get through the first round you will need geek knowledge. Contestants will be asked 40 questions - apparently located on the competition's site www.sexiestgeekalive.com. If you score well, you will then face an interview.

And for those lucky few remaining onto the semi-finals and then the final. Win and you shall be a God among men. Nearly win and you might get some cash or a prize or something.
