Gadget Show Live NEC 2011

Practical Action at the Gadget Show Live

At the Gadget Show at the NEC today there were lots of gadgets and gizmos to tempt you on every stand.  One of show’s presenters, Otis, was also there he was encouraging people to join up to a new club, Practical Action’s ‘Geek Club’.  At Practical Action we are calling all ‘geeks’ who love technology to unite and help us help tackle poverty by the use of technology in the developing world.

Delegates at the show can take part in an online quiz to identify what kind of geek they are – uber geek , collector geek, work geek or social geek.  Joining the club gives them an online space where they can talk about technologies they like, find out about what technologies we use at Practical Action, and suggest technologies they feel would be useful in developing countries.

Anyone, including students, can join the club and find out what kind of a geek they are and it’s completely free.  If you want to find out more please go to www.practicalaction.org/geek

Being a social geek I’m now going to tweet a link to this blog (you can follow me @juliepollard1),check out #GadgetShowLive  and update my facebook status!!
