'Dancing' After Woz: Which Geek Should Be Next?

Tonight's cuppa: peppermint tea

DWTSWoz Fell asleep during primetime TV Tuesday night -- the result of, I believe, the latent effects of the switchover to Daylight Savings Time -- then woke up to watch ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" on the DVR and see, with great sadness, that Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak was eliminated.

The Dream That Was Woz is over.

Yeah, he was a terrible ballroom dancer (but said he will continue taking lessons with his wife), but he was an outstanding entertainer and a ray of sunshine in a troubled time.

He's also probably the only mega-zillionaire that's not hated, envied or feared by large segments of the population at the moment.

Woz is not the first computer geek to appear on the show, with that honor falling to Mark Cuban, who overcame hip-replacement surgery to make it to the fifth week of competition.

IMHO, this paves the way for future appearances by more stars of the computer world. In the spirit of "Dancing With the Stars," in which the voters kept Woz around long after the judges deemed him irredeemably bad, you get to vote!

If you don't know who any of the following guys are, just Google them. Trust me, something will come up (especially for Brin and Page).
