Wired is hosting the third annual Wired News Sexiest Geeks contest, a competition that allows anyone to submit names and photos of those they deem worthy of receiving acknowledgment for being a a smart and sexy Wired man or woman.
"Remember, geeks are not just computer nerds," Wired explained. "They're dedicated to the point of being obsessed, so smart they scare you, and hot in a possibly undefinable way. "
Geeks hot right now include Kari Byron from the Discovery Channel series "Mythbusters" with 997 positive votes and Jade Raymond, a game producer who has 897 votes. Man geeks include the host of Wired Science, Chris Hardwick.
This is similar to another contest we saw in November:
