A Top Geek update

Okay, so most of you should remember that I was an entrant in the Top Geek competition run by Australian ISP iiNet (http://www.topgeek.iinet.net.au/). Thanks to all your support, I emerged from the qualifying rounds with the highest total votes, giving me an automatic entry into the finals.

The way they're working these finals, they're going to whittle us down from 20 initial finalists by eliminating 5 people every few weeks using a series of challenges. The first of those challenges has just finished, and they're currently in the middle of judging. This first challenge set us finalists the task of inventing a new gadget or app that would be the "next big thing". Our entries didn't have to be real or practical, we were also allowed (indeed, encouraged) to be fantastical and draw on our own fandoms.

So....without further rambling on my part, here's my entry. Enjoy!

    Very professional Archaic. All that was missing was a projector and laser pointer.

    I always pictured you as more serious and down to Earth. I just didn't see you with this much of a geeky goofy side, but it's really good and you should definitely roll with it.

    I imagined you with a much deeper voice. Still, pretty clever video, Archaic. Also, COMPANION CUBE REFERENCES???

    Yeah. You're much goofier than I expected too.
    ...Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    Anyway, I'll take 200.

    Yeah, I couldn't really arrange for a quiet space where I could have put a powerpoint up on a big screen, or I would've done that and used my laser pointer mouse with it.

    I figured I couldn't only make Pokémon references, or I'd risk the judges not getting things. Besides, what's wrong with the companion cube? I mean....okay, I put mine in the incinerator without a second thought, but still...

    Actually, damn, that's a missed opportunity there, I should've mentioned how flammable that design was.
