In her post below, echan mentions Wired's Sexiest Geeks of 2005. In a nice crossover, this week Sepia Mutiny alerts us to the fact that a geek has made People Magazine's Sexiest Men Alive list this year. His name is Michael Manga, a professor of geophysics at the best university Saheli and I ever went to, UC Berkeley (Go Bears!). According to this rediff article, he is a bit embarassed by all the attention. (The article refers to the UC Berkeley News, which I have never heard of, and Berkeley is spelled wrong in the article, so take it with a grain of salt.) Off of his homepage, he has a link to "what is geophysics" which links to this neat little poem.
On a personal note, it is nice to see us sexy Indian geeks from UC Berkeley finally get our due. (Technically, he is only half Indian, but it is a good start.)
