The Geekie Awards: The Aftermath
Geekie Awards: The Aftermath
By: Terra Clarke Olsen
Meg and I attended The Geekie Awards last night, and boy what a night! We met so many incredible geeks and saw so many fabulous outfits. (Us nerds clean up well.) We didn’t win, but feel so honored to have been nominated for the “Best of” website category. And a big congratulations to Adam and Gary of The Nerd Machine for winning! We met the guys responsible for the site while in line, and they were complete sweethearts.
As you can imagine, a lot of pictures were taken, so we’re just going to get to the good stuff. Here are some highlights from the night:
Met Steve Frech, the creator of What Do You Know, a rad podcast (that you should of course check out!) . Also got to know his crew, Raymond, Natalie, and Aaron (the producer of ‘What Do You Know’), who are all amazing people as well! (Spent most of the night talking with them. Good peoples!)
Had the pleasure of meeting Sachin, Dane, and Geoff from Soul Cake, the creators of the actual Geekie Award! An amazing raygun that you can remove from its stand. Again, amazing people!
Also chatted with the creative minds behind Batman Puppet Master (a project you will probably see featured on here in the near future). Again, amazing people!
The theme of the night was ‘Amazing People!” all around. We had so much fun and feel lucky to have been able to rub elbows with fellow nerds for a full night of celebration.
And one last shout out to Kristen for putting this amazing show together!
