What does it mean to be GeekWire’s Geek of the Week? For one of our past honorees, Bill Sleeper, it was the ticket to national fame in a Best Buy television commercial.

But apart from that, it’s one of GeekWire’s most popular standing features — spotlighting the geekiest characters of the Seattle region in profiles that are informing, entertaining, and even inspiring.

Geek of the Week uses a Q&A format based on a wide-ranging and fun questionnaire, below. Check out the Geek of the Week archive here to read past profiles.
