August 12, 2009

Dearest Smart Masses,

We gather here today not to induce drooling over the latest in USB spork technology or to introduce a WiFi detecting flying Dalek, but rather to say a heartfelt THANK YOU to you -- our loyal fans. Why? Because it was just shy of a Jupiter year ago when we launched ThinkGeek. That's more than 315 Million seconds in the past! Plainly spoken, ThinkGeek revealed itself to the Jedi way way back in August of the year 1999, or 4696 if you prefer the Chinese Lunar calendar. Which in a very roundabout way makes this our official 10 year Anniversary, or our 10th birthday - depending on how you roll. However you like to think of it, we know that we'd never be where we are today without you - our amazing Zombie Monkey Army of Smart Masses. So thanks, folks. Here's to you!

FREE T-Shirt!! Also: Braaaaains.

What's New @ ThinkGeek !!

It's ThinkGeek 3.0 - Now with More Awesome(TM)!

It's ThinkGeek 3.0 - Now with More Awesome(TM)!

We couldn't let our 10th Birthday come and go without giving you another great gift, so we pulled out our digital hammers and chisels and carved out our very own new web site - ThinkGeek 3.0! We are pleased as monkeys at the Dole farm to be able to show you our shiny new presence on the Intarwebz, and we hope you enjoy it. With this redesign comes much more than just a visual design -- we now have more fun like action shots, Tweets, haiku, videos and other geeky silliness across the site. Plus, we've gained real flexibility in bringing you new features more often, so stay tuned for more Awesome(TM) in the future. Want to know more about the new site? Read it all here:

Celebrate our 10 Year Awesomeversary - Enter the Sweepstakes!

We know that it's our 10th Birthday (or Awesomeversary as we're wont to call it) but we fully realize that we would have never gotten to where we are today without you, our loyal ThinkGeek fans. If we could thank each and every one of you individually, we would. But since the Transporter and Time Turner have yet to actually exist (come on scientists, get on it!), we've decided to try to do the next best thing and give you free stuff. Our 10 Year Awesomeversary Sweepstakes of Win has THREE winners, with prizes including the TaunTaun Sleeping bag prototype, being featured on our site for a day, and shopping sprees for the winners. These prizes are as unique as you are, and we want to give them to YOU, so get going and enter already. Hurry! Contest ends August 31st!

All Hail The 2009 SysQueen And SysKing Winners

All hail your new sysking and sysqueen!

One thing was clear from reading the over one thousand nominations you submitted to the 2009 SysAdmin Pageant: there walk among us a legion of unsung heroes who defy threats to their personal safety -- nay, even the threads of their sanity -- to keep the fires of the world's information engines burning. We selected ten of the most worthy as our finalists, asked a cadre of our overlords to cast their ballots, and loaded the ballots into a Perl script to decide the vote. Read some of your nominees' stories and find out who won ThinkGeek's 2009 SysAdmin Pageant in our latest blog post.
