OH! 
You could make a "geeky" necklace by either wire wrapping them or drilling a small hole in the sides.
You could attach them to a frame, along with other assorted computer bibs and bobs to make a computer nerd desk photo.

I saw something once where someone used those to make fridge magnets.  I thought that was a cool idea

They're screaming to be made into cufflinks, knobs for a jewellery chest with a gazillion small compartments, or nerdy coasters.

I actually used keyboard keys for a craft lately. I used this site for inspiration. It had a few good ideas. Hope this helps :3

I had a ton of these and i found a great use. I make lamps, and sometimes have to use whatever is around for a base. I took a small square of plywood, drilled 4 small holes barely into the wood, and pushed the underside of the keys into the holes. This made feet on the base so the cord had space to exit the lamp/base.

I would make at least a couple of them into jewelry (like rings; the geek in me screams for a CRTL-ALT-DEL combo, or N-O-ESC maybe?), but there are so many more options! You could spell out a simple message in a frame as wall art, glue them to thumb tacks for an original touch to a cork board, decorate picture frames with them, drill tiny holes in them and sew them together to make a small bag, glue them to pieces of cork or wood to make coasters, etc
