    Vote for the Sexiest Geeks of 2008

    Every geek's a little bit sexy, somehow. Maybe it's the glasses, the hot talk about black holes or the Asperger's-like obsession with sci-fi, science or gadgets.

    But which nerds really moved the sexy needle in 2008?

    Welcome to the fourth annual Wired.com Sexiest Geeks contest. Each year we seed the list with some of the smartest, sexiest and most "wired" men and women on the scene, then throw open the competition to our readers.

    Rate our picks and submit the names and pictures of people you think deserve the esteemed title of Wired Sexy Geek below.

    See the current list (with pics) here.

    Us guys who work in games have had an eternity drooling over Jade Raymond. Ubisoft capitalised on this by placing her face all over promoting Assassin's Creed! :biggrin

    Some good choices there I watch a few of them through podcasts most days like Veronica Belmont and Olivia Munn but I was quite suprised Cali Lewis wasn't in there.

    lol. Don't worry, I'm not going to go all feministico on y'all.

    Women are a geeky minority - and that poll is going to be crammed with female totty, be they actually geeky or not.

    *sigh* :biggrin

    First off, there were too many candidates to be able to make a choice. :oops: They should have thinned out the field before posting the "finalists". Also, some of the candidates weren't authentic geeks. Acting in a science fiction TV show doesn't make you a geek just because geeks watch it. I suppose a member here could create a poll nominating authentic geeks (male and female), and then we'd have a *real* contest. :wink:

    Yeah, I've seen those too.

    I think this is the cleanest picture I have of her.
