When: Sat., June 13, 9 p.m. 2009
for many of you, prom was a very long time ago. for some of you, it may have been not so long ago. either way, there is an inherent problem with most proms: they are insufficiently geeky. people are dressed in fluffy dresses and tuxes, and they're not showing off any shiny projects they're working on. Pumping Station: One, Chicago's hackerspace, has set out to fix this. on June 13, 2009, we are hosting the Geek Prom. there will be music, dancing, drinking, exhibits, contests, and total geeky utopia. there will be two contests: an exolayer pairing contest, and a science fair contest! advance tickets are $10 for singles, $15 for couples. at the door, tickets are $15 for singles, and $20 for couples. for more information about the Geek Prom and the contests, visit the website at http://www.pumpingstationone.org/geekprom.
