Tell me about Gnomedex


It's difficult to explain

It's Indharasophang


Gnomedex, it's geeky fun

Gnomedex keeps out of the sun

Gnomedex, for the girls and boys

Gnomedex, with all the high-tech toys


Podcastin', aggregatin', video bloggin', crazy taggin'

Photo galleries, startup salaries

Chris and Ponzi running madly

And of course don't you forget all the free schwag

To be had


Is that because everyone wants to be a gnome, or what?


These are my people


Every conference that sucked

And I turned it around


I attended my first Gnomedex at the age of six

Everything I know about life, love, and the human condition

I learned at Gnomedex

If mankind can still be saved

The answers will be found

Among the pocket protectors and fanny packs


These are my people


For geeks, by geeks, about geeks


Gnomedex is like traveling into the future

But they still have beer


All our good friends at Gnomedex 6.0


It's the Woodstock of conferences, podcasting, and blogging


People's eyes light up when they give each other ideas

And then they go off and talk about it


I'd like to go to Gnomedex

A wuh-a-wuh-a-wuh-a


The audience might heckle you up on the stage

Your choice of web feed format might cause a rage

You know I think we really oughta try

To blow that bandwidth, all that bandwidth, sky high!


(World's shortest heavy-metal solo)


Forget CES and Macworld, OSCON and Foo Camp

MacBooks, Tablet PCs, mobile phones say "look at me!"

Don't know what makes it so good

We'd write an algorithm to explain it if we could

(But we can't)


Gnomedex tickets are hard to get

Gnomedex, is it Web 3.0 yet?

Gnomedex, it's geeky fun

Gnomedex, it keeps us out of the sun


Tell me about Gnomedex


If someone says "Hey, can I come and pitch my product?"

We basically kick 'em in the shin
