What better time to launch a blog for geeks than during Global Geek Week?
Taglined “an entire week dedicated all that is geek & giving back,” Global Geek Week is sponsored by the Society for Geek Advancement (also on Twitter @geekadvancement) and Mashable’s Summer of Social Good with a focus on attracting donations to major nonprofits like Oxfam America and The Humane Society.
There’s also a contest going on, with the winner getting two roundtrip tickets to anywhere Virgin America flies. Just submit a geek-inspired video up to two-minutes long and post to YouTube’s globalgeekweek group to be judged by tech luminaries such as Guy Kawasaki and Shira Lazar. Over 50 videos have been submitted already, and they’re pretty darn geeky.
Follow the latest in geek-week tweets with the #geeksforgood hashtag.
UPDATE (Aug 10): Mashable’s got a run-down of the top ten geekiest videos submitted.
