Am I sexy enough?

Ok, this may be complete hubris, but I am throwing my name in the ring to win the 'Sexiest Geek of the Year' award on Wired.com. Wired is looking for people to nominate a sexy geek for The 10 sexiest geeks of the year...and I'm geek enough to try!

From the website: Be they programmers, scientists, writers, architects or attorneys, please leave your suggestions in the comment space below. There are no rules for submission. The only guidance we can offer is: you know a sexy geek when you see, nay, experience one. We'll publish the finalists next month along with a space to vote for who you think is the smokingest geek.
