Well folks, last year we did our own sexiest geek of the year poll, but unfortunately didn’t have time to do one this year due to our second anniversary contest.
Luckily, Wired took charge, compiling a list of potential candidates for the title and having their readers vote. The winner? Jade Raymond, a sexy, geeky girl who gained Net-celebrity status when she showed up all over the Web to promote Ubisoft’s latest game: Assassin’s Creed. Jade is also a fellow “Québécoise” and works barely 10 minutes away from where I am.
Want more? Here is the list of the other nominees for Wired’s top five sexiest geeks of 2007.
3- Danica McKellar. Danica is an American actress and mathematician. As a result of this unusual combination of interests, McKellar has an Erdős–Bacon number of 6. She is best known for her role as Winnie Cooper in the television show The Wonder Years. (Source: Wikipedia)

Oh, and naturally… Leah Culver, the winner of our sexy geek poll last year, also got into the contest.
Candidates were submitted by readers and the contest was supposed to be for both male and female geeks. Unsurprisingly, very few guys were featured in the poll. Sorry girls! Maybe one female blogger from our audience should be starting a similar poll, but for male geeks only.
