Dog scootering is like mushing, but with a two wheel scooter. Basically you use all of the same gear; harnesses, tugline, dogs.

As for the whole geek chic thing, it's just a trend. Most geeks will roll back into the subhuman class when the information age becomes old hat. I spent my teen years (and those after) behind a computer(s) racking up my geek-points and its nothing to brag about. Monty probably remembers being un-cool as I do. It's funny how the Internet made geeks popular, but I think it's short lived.
