It was actually quite easy to put together the presenter lineup for Nerd Alert. Maybe it’s because, when prompted, everyone has a Nerd flag they’ve been wanting to fly, even if it’s not immediately apparent. A few emails to some past participants and Chicagophiles and we quickly had a list of people that would make up the evening’s roster.
Nerds are really just passionate folks who have taken the time and interest to hone in or develop a particular skill or interest. Some of our nerds might be experts, but most of them seem simply interested in the people, places and things around them. Our Nerds are talented folks who see themselves more as students than performers, in development, rather than accomplished. Oh yea, and they’re single. If you’re the kind of person that finds yourself geeking out on something, this is the event for you. Tickets go on sale July 4th. But there’s a way to jump the line.
