Well, you are probably here because someone told you about this wonderful thing called a geeknic. So what is it, you may ask? A geeknic is rather simply a picnic for geeks. Throughout 2009, we’re planning (and helping others plan) geeknics all over the world. Anywhere there are geeks, we would love to see a geeknic happen.
So what happens at a geeknic? Well, it will vary by location, by what is available at the site, and by the decisions of the planners of each individual geeknic. No two geeknics will be the same, but they will all be exciting and fun events for local geeks. The common theme is meeting in the outdoors (something unusual for us geeks) and having a good time.
When possible, many geeknics will be attended by freenode staff, but regardless we’re here and happy to help promote geeknics, so if you need help and would like to organize your very own local geeknic, let us know at email@example.com.
You can also find us at #geeknic on irc.freenode.net, and we now have a facebook group too!
