So how many of you South Florida Geeks have ever heard of “w00tstock“???
How about Wil Wheaton? Â Of course you have.
Adam Savage? Â Yea, THAT Mythbusting Adam Savage.
Well, they’ve been touring the country with music-comedy duo Paul and Storm to “…present a night of songs, readings, comedy, demonstrations, short films, special guests, and other clever widgets born from and dedicated to the enthusiasms, obsessions, trials and joys of geek pride.”
Sure they’ve gone to places like LA, Seattle, Portland, Chicago, Minneapolis, but as far as I can tell, they haven’t reached the East Coast (yet).
But that was before I had anything to say about it.
While I’m sure that places like NY, or NC, or VA might be trying to get them, I want to make South Florida one of their next stops.
According to Wil’s own blog:
Q: Will you come to NAME OF MY CITY for another w00tstock?
A: If you can get 300 of your friends together, we’ll probably come do a show for you.
So guess what, the count begins right here, with #1- me, the South Florida Social Geek.
Can we get at 300 Florida geeks together all in one place?
Tampa. Â Orlando. Â Sarasota. Â Naples. Â Gainesville. Â Panama City. Â Daytona. Â Etc. Â I’m looking at you.
Let’s put our differences aside and work together. Â We all want the same thing, to geek out.

It’s time that we show the rest of the country that South Florida’s Silicon Beach is one of the great geek capitals of the country.
