'Internet Geek (U.K.)' is the official name of the 'organisation'
that has the domain geek.org.uk The 'organisation' was named in 1995 at a
time when you actually had to submit a description of what your organisation
was if you wanted a domain registered; at a time when few people knew what
the Internet was and 'Internet Geek' didn't sound completely lame.
'We' are proficient in various geek skills, but our main specialism at the
moment is apathy, in which we are now world leaders.

All enquiries about 'Internet Geek' and the geek.org.uk domain
should be addressed to me,
Despite 8 years of apathy, 6 years of NS record anomalies, 1 censorship
attempt by JANET-CERT (the reason geek.org.uk was first registered),
Unix / Net / Hack page
still lives on. Maintained? I can't even remember where its hosted
without looking at the zone file. Hard to believe in 1996 people were
so impressed by such a simple basic nothingness page, but I've still got
all my old email somewhere to prove it.
I finally signed up to Nominet's terms and conditions (geek.org.uk is a
pre-nominet domain) and got stuff normalised.
...make that 10 years of apathy.
