Will speedcabling become a new geek sport?

What once was called – go clean out that closet with the patch cables – in now being turned into a new type of sport for geeks. Speedcabling, as they call it, already had its first competitions held in Echo Park, CA.

More information and the video of the first competition held at the Speedcabling.org web site.
