Geekazine New Patreon Page: Be a Part of the Sconnie Geek Nation!

Geekazine has decided to venture into the crowdfunding game by joining Patreon. As we’re approaching 10 years of podcasting and content creation, I have found the last couple years have not been as lucrative as in past. Cancelling a few events I attend for fresh content, I am now in a precarious situation as to the direction of the website and other properties. By joining Patreon, I am asking you – the content viewer – to help out with covering funds for my videos and travel. I have been able to do this for the last 9 years, heading to CES, SXSW, NAB, and more.

With the addition of the cross-bar and placing 2 cameras on the shoe, people stated it looked like Wall-e or Johnny 5. Therefore, Walle5 was born! I debuted Walle5 at SXSW with a...

#GeekOut

What is #GeekOut ? What is a Hashtag? In this world of Twitter, Facebook and Google+, hashtags are used to give your voice some clarity. For instance, if I was talking about basket weaving, I would use #BasketWeaving for a hashtag. When someone is searching, those keywords could lead them to you, and ultimately, a friend in basket weaving. I have been thinking of many different hashtags that I could use to promote myself. In the last 7 years, I adopted two tag lines – For the Geek in all of us, and Geek Out! The first one – #ForTheGeekInAllOfUs – seemed a bit too long. #GeekOut on the other hand seemed to be to the point and really summed me up in two words. Therefore, #GeekOut was chosen. Do you Have the Rights to #GeekOut? No, nor does anyone else. It’s a tag only. However, its use...
