Skepticism

AI: Geek gifts!

This week was my birthday and I got lots of fantastic presents, wishes and drinks from friends and family.  Coincidentally, I also had some cool, geeky gift ideas come to me via twitter/email etc:

For every writer (from Jen on Twitter): Font jewelry!

From Despair.com (also via Twitter): Social Media in a Venn Diagram

And of course, there are the great standards of SurlyRamics Skepticware (are you following @SurlyAmy on Twitter? You should be!) and Made with Molecules Jewelry.

What else is out there? Find me some cool, geeky gift ideas!

(Bonus points if you suggest anything NOT already discussed in the 2008 Skepchick gift guide! :)

Masala Skeptic

Maria Walters (a.k.a. Masala Skeptic) has spent a lot of time in ‘furrin parts,’ including Hong Kong, Trinidad, and Pittsburgh. Although her passport is from India, she’s spent most of her adult life in the United States. She currently lives in Atlanta and has an unhealthy affection for science fiction, Neil Gaiman and all things Muppet.

  1. What’s “TweetStalk”? That’s the problem with so many internet diagrams like that: there’s always at least one you’ve never heard of, and you wonder if maybe the design is just a clever bit of marketing for that site.

  2. A handheld GPS, and a premium subscription to geocaching.com.

    Taking advantage of billion dollar satellite technology in order to find tupperware hidden in woodlots, or film canisters under parking lot lampposts is incredibly geeky.

  3. For my birthday, get yourself something… a plane/bus/train ticket or a carpool together for a trip to Chicago! Give yourself the gift of a great party!

    For my birthday, I’m giving myself shameless self-promotion!

  4. First of all thank you for mentioning Surly Ramics. I do so appreciate it!

    2nd Id like to say that the ultimate geek gift would have to be a trip to TAM 7 in Vegas…where I will be in all my surly-nerdy-drunken-glory! Join the party… and see you soon!

  5. Ooh. I so want that new despair glass!

    And there’s something very wrong with me. I find the tokyoflash watches to not be geeky enough. I don’t want twelve leds representing the hours, I want them to show the hours in trinary!
