About Us

We have a video! Maybe you should just watch the video:*

The Inconceivably Nerdy Young Adults of Columbus, Ohio (TINYACO, pronounced "Tiny Eck-o") is a group for young adults who are nerds, geeks, and quite possibly dorks. We like Star Trek, Star Wars, Doctor Who, The Big Bang Theory, New Girl, Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch, Robert Downey Jr., Ian McKellen, etc.), Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Monty Python, Princess Bride, Twilight Zone, Pride and Prejudice (and all things Jane Austen), the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Neil Gaiman, superhero movies, comic books, LEGO video games, puns, pirates, ninjas, zombies, and maybe even vampires. <br> <br> This is a group of people who want to hang out with other people who like some (or possibly all) of these things too. We'll hang out. We'll eat, we'll see movies, we'll go try new things. But the most important thing is to get a bunch of people together who like imaginative, crazy, fun things. And no one will ever have to start a sentence with any sort of apology for being a nerd - because if you're a nerd, we need you. <br> <br> We organize at least a meetup a month. We'll go see retro movies at Movie Tavern, play laser tag, go to Dave and Buster's, check out the Renaissance fair, go to the planetarium, have a picnic, and loads of other things that pop into my head or the heads of the other fantastic group organizers. <br> <br> Things We Do (or Will Do):

Meetup Ideas and Becoming an Organizer <br> If you have an idea for a meetup, I'd love to hear about it! If it's something happening on a specific date that you would be interested in attending - and possibly even organizing, please suggest a meetup. Otherwise, if it's something you think other people might be interested in doing that doesn't need to happen on a specific date, start a discussion about it or email me. If I think your idea is something that members of the group would be interested in, I will do my best to make it happen. I'm always looking for organizers to help out as well, so let me know if you'd be interested in being an organizer! <br> <br> TINYACO Membership Policies <br> And here's the part where I have to be firm. TINYACO was created with the sole intent of gathering together people who like "nerdy" things so that they can be around other people who share similar interests. And there are a lot of nerdy things to be interested in (see above for examples). I don't expect every member to understand or appreciate every nerd interest around; however, I do expect all ACOs to be respectful of each other. I'm going to be very protective of my group; anyone who harasses, bullies, or in any way disrespects or threatens the safety or comfort of another member of the group, either at an event or online, will be banned from TINYACO. <br> <br> TINYACO and Drinking <br> If you don't drink, don't worry. Like your nerd interests, your drinking habits (or lack thereof) will be respected. Honestly, if you don't drink, it means I don't have to worry about you, so thank you. You can stop reading now. For those of you who do drink . . . <br> <br> TINYACO is a social group for adults 21 and older, so yes, we drink, we socialize, we occasionally break out into song and dance. Please don't ruin it by being irresponsible. The TINYACO Executive Team wants everyone to have a good time and be safe, so please, practice safe drinking. <br> <br> ~Kristen, TINYACO Founder and President

We're 418 ACOs
