If I was there I'd bring a bag of poop and ask if he'd sign it.

Exactly my point, in case he'd be reluctant. :)

If the hack can state the obvious for money, I can do it for pleasure ^^

The 10 Nerdiest Cities in America


The 10 Best Cities for Nerds:

1 Atlanta, GA :dance:
2 Portland, OR
3 Seattle, WA
4 Sacramento, CA
5 Minneapolis, MN
6 Boston, MA
7 Las Vegas, NV
8 Miami, FL
9 San Jose, CA
10 Denver, CO

How’d We Do It?

Nerds love data—and I knew I’d need a lot of it in order to figure out the best places for them to live. Luckily, I’m basically my own target audience, so I was able to search my feelings like a Jedi Master in order to come up with the criteria I’d look for when determining what makes a city nerd-friendly. Here’s what I came up with:

Number of annual comic book, video game, anime, and sci-fi / fantasy conventions
People per comic book store
People per video game store
People per traditional gaming store
People per computer store
People per bookstore
People per LARPing group
People per science museum
Distance to the nearest Renaissance faire

How awesome! Due to work I spend lots and lots of time in Portland, OR and Seattle, WA, I live in Sacramento, CA and my family and I go to San Jose, CA pretty frequently for my wife's family. I guess I live and work along the Geek-Corridor.

I just made it up, but Seattle, Portland and Sacramento are all along the I-5 corridor.

Man, not really close to any of those cities. Boston, sorta.
