There has been a lot of enthusiasm for the "Sciencey" swaps and the various "geek-friendly" telly programmes swaps... so why not a Geek chic swap?
For those who would not know what Geek chic is, Wikipedia to the rescue! There you go : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geek_chic
Come on, we all want a nice stencilled t-shirt with a big 'super Mario' mushroom on it or a Monty Python quote, a quirky necklace made of buttons, a scarf that spells something in binary, a fractal teddy bear, something to decorate your carrel at the university, a t-shirt with your field of studies written on it, or perhaps a XKCD pin! Think about the possibilities!

We’ll be having three different groups based on the size of the swap people are willing to do. “Closet Geekster,” “Come to the Geek Side,” and “Embrace Your Consummate Geekitude.”
“Closet Geekster” requirements: 1 medium, 2 smalls
“Come to the Geek Side” requirements: 1 large, 1 medium, 3 smalls
“Embrace Your Consummate Geekitude” requirements: As big as you want. If you are willing to do this we will try and partner you with someone else who is also willing. Then the two of you can discuss between yourselves how large a swap you are willing to do. Once you have decided both partners must pm both organizers with your decision.
