Circle the dates and get your geek on | The Daily Dust delivering the best bric a brac, daily news and events with a British flavour

Looking for a new calendar for 2011? Then how about the Geek Calendar, by geeks and for geeks.

In their words “The Geek Calendar is a celebration of the nerdishness of contemporary British life. It’s also a project to raise money for libel reform.”

See if you can spot Professor Brian Cox, Jonathan Ross (looking a bit like Vincent Price to be honest), Imran Khan, Adam Rutherford, Ben Goldacre, Alexs Krotowski and more throughout next year.

Next up, you can ask why it seems to have 20 geeks in it, filling up the months – all I can think up is twelve pennies (original months) to the shilling, and twenty shillings (geek months) to the year (pound). I could be wrong though, given it has fourteen months…
