Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the current state of fan/creator relationships and scratch the surface of several ongoing concerns around it all. In the news, the US elections were mostly positive, Amazon is likely coming to Rym's neighborhood, and gameplay videos present a conundrum. Also, PAX East is live and Saturday is sold out!
Tonight on GeekNights, we revive our ancient How to Not Suck series with a discussion of how to properly enjoy the beach. With sand, not the movie. In the news, The Fields Medal was stolen, as were the Swedish royal jewels. Kroger might ban Visa, leading us to some thoughts on a cashless society. We will be live at PAX West 2018, including live on the PAX Twitch Stream!
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider car shares, bike shares, scooter shares, and the like. In the news, we saw some great rooftop fireworks yesterday, there are few options to save the Thai soccer team, cave diving is incredibly dangerous, and your weird Internet crap might be the evolution of a neo-Dada movement.
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider what's changed for us between 1998, 2008, and 2018. It's a meta show about our lives and what we've been up to. In the news, we're playing some PUBG, the World Cup is happening, Koko the gorilla has died, Cannabis is legal in Canada and may soon be in New York.
Tonight on GeekNights, we get ever-increasingly specific in our food-related show topics with some thoughts on Indian food. In the news, we've resolved some recent production pipeline issues, the weird business at the consulates continues, New York City needs New York State's permission to correct the spelling of the Verraz(z)ano Bridge in honor of Verrazzano.
Tonight on GeekNights, in light of the ridiculous disaster that was Universal Fancon, following in many ways in the footsteps of DashCon or Fyre Festival, we consider the terrible ripeness of a time of actual scam conventions. TL;DR: never preregister for a first-year con not run by a major brand targeting more than a thousand attendees.
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider socks. We care more about them than you might expect (unless you realize how old we actually are). In the news, we have a history of NESticle, it turns out knuckle cracking is shockingly complex, and no one knows how to walk anywhere.
