Cyan Banister, Guest Editor

I’m happy to report that we have the Nrrrd Grrrl (not a typo) herself, Cyan Banister (not to be confused with a Cyan Banister) as our Guest Editor for the week! But much more than that, Cyan is the Founder and Editor-In-Chief of, a place where in the words of Fast Company, “recognizes market potential in the primordial instinct to ogle (and be olged)”. is a platform where subscribers can vote on their favorite photos from the models of Zivity, and help the models and photographers get scrilla in the process!

Cyan also runs, a blog celebrating the sexiest geeks, well, alive.

I’m proud to welcome Cyan to the hallowed halls of the geeky Guest Editor, with the likes of Chris Hardwick, Irina Slutsky, and Veronica Belmont!

Gary Gulman – Girlfriend proof computer
Gary Gulman, you are my hero! Never has the semicolon been so funny in my life. Guys, Gary speaks the truth here and these are words of wisdom. Heck, ladies may want to follow his advice too because you never know when the semicolon ninjas will sneak up on you and ruin your day.

Greg Morton – Best Buy security tags
Completely understand them and completely hate them — security tags. Greg Morton has the perfect solution for the next time security gives you dirty looks when your freshly purchased merchandise sets off store security alarms. I totally need to build up the guts to do this.

Kelly Soloduka – Food court Street Fighters
I’m from Phoenix, Arizona and our culture is centered around the mall, arcades and food courts. Just about everyone does their time serving mallrats while avoiding the blazing heat, so this brought back memories.

Amber Preston – Addicted to social networking
There’s a reason why people look better on MySpace (angles baby) and the world really needs more social networking jokes, because some of it is just pure comedy.

Jeff Bodart – Women love a British accent
Seriously, American women love British accents. This is absolutely true. I swear, a British guy can say anything to me and I go weak in the knees.

Macio – Seductive cab ride
It is a fantasy of mine to spend a year riding around in taxis and interviewing people to capture their best taxi stories. This is one of the best I’ve ever heard. Also, best song ever to get stuck in your head.
