Recently, I was approached by the good people at SingleHop to participate in their Geekness Day celebration by providing a little information about how I embrace my Geekness. So why am I posting this article today and not on the official Geekness Day of July 13th? Simple, every day is Geekness Day at Doctor Geek’s Laboratory. So what makes Doctor Geek a geek? Well like everyone I have several geekdoms, several fandoms I am very passionate about. I am such a Highlander fan I even have Highlander the Source in my collection.
What can I say? I am an archivist. In fact, my video collection is so vast I single handedly could restore the Sci-Fi channel (note I did not say Syfy) and the ME TV channel. Maybe I should see if the people at SingleHop can set me up with some dedicated servers and a cloud solution for my video server?
Anyway, while I am very proud of my video collection, I am most proud of Doctor Geek’s Laboratory of Applied Geekdom, the audio show that combines science and fiction to explore the future that has not yet come to pass. I created the show as STEM (Science,Technology, Engineering, and Math) outreach, and I am proud to say homeschooling parents are using the show to supplement their children’s science curriculum. The success of our show is proof that nothing is impossible, just highly improbable.
So what is next for Doctor Geek’s Laboratory? Are we resting on our success? Never! As Captain Kirk said, “risk is our business”. In addition to beginning pre-production on season 3 of the audio show, we will explore the strange new world of live entertainment. On September 27th 2014 The South Florida Museum is proud to present Doctor Geek’s Science Fair! This full day expo combines the excitement of a science fiction convention with the fun of a science fair. In addition to the panels, vendors and exhibitors, students will be participating in our inaugural Applied Geekdom Competition.
I hope everyone has a great Geekness Day! And remember to apply your Geekdom!
