The Original GeekGeer Site from 1995

Thanks to wonderful technology, that is a bit scary that everything on the web from the beginning is saved somewhere online. This is courtesy of If you go to the live archived site, you can actually click around the old GeekGeeer site.

I still have a few geekgeer glasses around if anyone is interested – but they are now the collectors edition and very expensive.

These GeekGeer glasses had a special screen anit-glare coating that was leading edge eye wear technology at the time that is now long outdated because you don’t need anti-glare for the latest flat screen monitor technology. I don’t think anyone could really imagine how different the world would be in 15 years due to the Geeks taking over the world with the internet and “World Wide Web”!

WSJ Says Everyone Wants to Be a Geek

The Wall Street Journal says “Now that Everyone Wants to be a Geek, Lawyers Have Been Called”, a June 20th, 2011 article talks about how Best Buy is suing companies using the word “Geek” that they say conflicts with their trademark GeekSquad. GeekGeer has been trademarked since 1997. It’s kind of ridiculous and seems more like a publicity stunt. It would be like saying no one can use the word “window” because of Microsoft’s trademark on “Windows-tm”. Maybe they will sue GeekGeer and I can get some good publicity?
