|The Geek Chic Boutique opened December 2008 as a little boutique in the quaint and cozy downtown area of Fredericton, NB, Canada.
We had heard a rumor that geeks were now "chic". So we shyly emerged from the safe haven of our monitor-lit computer rooms to start the store of our dreams...the geekiest store in Canada.
A place where geeks can shop for gadgets, office toys, DIY projects, apparel, accessories, award winning board games (you know...for when the server is down).
Who are we?
Since the age of five, I've been a gamer. Starting with my original Nintendo console, grew up playing King's Quest on my PC (wow, that was a long time ago), and loved strategy style board games. Always on a quest to find the ultimate game.
I'm also a big computer geek, constantly modifying my system and learning to use new programs which has lead me to becoming a huge fan of Linux and Open Source software.
Favorite celebrities - Linus Torvalds and Richard Stallman of course.
What was i doing?
Oh right.. about me.
I was avoiding this because it will be boring.
I previously existed as a code monkey, a small cog in the mega machine of corporate web development. I moved on to project manager - then something else officy and now I am here.
