Geek Squad, the computer repair company married to Best Buy, is looking for big thinkers. It’s looking for big thinkers in order to solve problems. Big problems. Big problems that require big thinking. So it’s sponsoring a (big?) contest to go along with its annual IdeaFestival, where it’s offering the biggest thinkers the chance to go to Louisville, Kentucky to meet other, bigger thinkers. You’ll meet Geek Squad’s Robert Stephens (a nice guy when I met him last year), Steve Wozniak (if you’re on CG, then you certainly know who Woz is) and Tiffany Shlain, founder of the Webby awards.
The contest is broken up into three separate parts: Solutions for eWaste, Power Conservation and Maximizing Untapped Resources. Get your entries, er, ideas, in before August 31.
That’s Fabio dipping the aforementioned Robert Stephens on a cold Louisville autumn morning. I’m not even joking.
