The GeekOut UK Story

I think it’s worth reflecting, especially when you’ve had a history like we have. Today I’d like to just tell you a tale on this cold winter’s day, to let you know that just because we’re not going to be around in the new year, nothing can stop you. Want to run your own events, similar to the GeekOut way? Want to make an impact on your local community? Perhaps you just want to make some great friends? Well then, read on for what we did and how we did it all. I’ll be discussing the setup prior to GeekOut UK, a quick summary of our history and how we got going.

UK Geek Events Spreadsheet

I’ve been trying to think of a way to get our UK Geek Events page to be, you know, better. It was fine for a little while, but constantly updating it has become tedious and if I’m being honest, clunky. So I got thinking about how to make this better, how we can do something as a community and how we can catalogue all of the great events that take place across the UK. I figured we might as well turn it into a Google Spreadsheet, as at least everyone will get access to the data this way.

Achievement Unlocked Award

Thanks to our friends over at LaterLevels, we were nominated for a blog award. Huzzah! I try not to do too many of these, as ultimately, an air of mystery is always a good thing, right? No? Okay, well then, I thought I’d take part in this blog award anyway. It’s nice to sometimes step back and appreciate the blogging community. There are so many of us, that many blogs never even bump into one another. Still, today I’ll take this award post by answering some custom questions given to me by Kim. Thanks for the mention!

GeekOut Bristol Meet – May 10th: To Be A Pokémon Master Gallery

Another event has now come and gone, as swiftly as a Pidgeot. Whenever a GeekOut Bristol Meet comes to a close, I like to reflect upon the events of the night. The competition, the prizes, the people and the conversations. Even the weather is worth mentioning from time to time, so in this month’s gallery, here’s a quick rundown of what happened, how the night went and most importantly, some information regarding our next event. Oh, of course, we also have a bunch of pictures to share with you lovely lot. As ever, this is our gallery of this month’s GeekOut Bristol Meet.

Top 10 Fictional Languages

We here at GeekOut South-West like to use words. We like to write words down and share words with you. Sometimes other geeks like to share words that don’t even exist – Not until they’ve put them down. There are plenty of made up languages out there which are awesome to listen to, or are downright ridiculous. This week, we’re going to check out our Top 10 Fictional Languages.

Why Professional Wrestling Is Now A Geek Subject

Since the decline of the Attitude Era, WWE, the largest wrestling promotion, has undergone rapid change. From a change in wrestlers and the presentation, to the audience themselves. I’ve written on numerous occasions about pay-per-views, such as this past weekend’s Wrestlemania and NXT TakeOver. Today, I’d like to chat about why pro wrestling is actually a geek topic. Hopefully, this’ll explain why you see so many wrestlers at Comic Cons!

Geek Travels: Glasgow

I’ve only ever been to Glasgow for work and even then I only stayed one night, where I spent that night in a pub with my work colleagues and we got very, very drunk. But what I do remember about Glasgow is that it’s a city with an interesting history, with lots of character. I recently revisited the city and to say that the it has changed is a bit of an understatement. Whilst wandering the streets, I was pleasantly surprised to find that Glasgow has a booming geek culture and wanted to share it with you.
