This weekend's geeky events: Glitch Con in Bentonville, AR; TinkerFest, MC Chris, in Little Rock, AR.
AGC will be at Glitch Con, but, wish we could be in Little Rock at the same time. Anyone have a time machine we can borrow?

Geeks of Arkansas, Unite!
Introduction
Arkansas Geek Central is the website for Geeks, Nerds, Trekkies/Trekkers, science fiction buffs, cosplayers, programmers, artists, web designers, etc residing in Arkansas. This site was created to inform the Geeks of Arkansas and surrounding areas about upcoming events that are of interest. If you know of any events not posted here, please let us know.

Is Arkansas Geek Central for you?
If you fit in to one (or more) of the following, this site is for you:

* If you ever cosplayed as your favorite anime or sci-fi character.
* If you spend more time tweaking your computer than actually using it.
* If you ever debated battles between "The Empire" from Star Wars VS "Starfleet" from Star Trek.
* If you ever tried to calculate the average air speed velocity of an unladen swallow.
* You know more than 3 languages, and most of those are not spoken.
