America's fastest geek contest

Author: JT Smith

MSNBC: "Don't expect to see it as a sport in the Olympics any
time soon, but you're about to see it at PC Expo. The editors of
brand-new technology trade Webzine ExtremeTech.com have
put together a contest/publicity stunt for next week's trade show
that's sure to get giggles, if not clicks. The Web site is hosting
an "America's fastest geek" contest. Techies will be invited to
build a PC from its components in timed heats. The winner gets
a souped-up computer and, more important, the admiration of
fellow gearheads."
