Geek Mook probes the vulnerabilities of geeks and geek culture. Editors Aaron Mannion and Julian Novitz have chosen both established artists and their emergent siblings to expose the patches and passions that contribute to the uptime—and downtime—of the most awkward and advanced computational device known to humankind: the geek. The moment is upon us. ?Signs foretold have been fulfilled: the Stones have tweeted and the status is on the wall. Blessed are the geeks, for they shall inherit the earth.

As well as containing a smorgasbord of geekery, Geek Mook contains easter eggs. The hardcopy mook has three easter eggs; the e-book contains only one. If you think that you have found one, email Geek Mook (firstname.lastname@example.org) with ‘Easter Egg’ in the subject line. In the body text, let us know what you think the easter egg is—hint, it’s a hidden message or something anomalous in the mook. We’ll reply with answers (and small prizes) until at least 2013.
