    A Quick Note on Our Editorial Stance in Response to Someone Who Doesn’t Like It

    Yesterday morning we received an email from reader Brad M. titled "Some Feedback A Long Time Coming..." it was, as advertised, feedback in response to how Brad M. feels we are in his words, "polarizing more towards a very specific political and philosophical stance." We've decided to answer his concerns publicly.

    Start the Year Off With a Bang by Following Us on Social Media

    It's a brand new year, and it's essentially a brand new Geekosystem. Our four editors -- which is one more than we've ever had before -- are ready and willing to take on the world of geek. From privacy policy shenanigans and foxes stealing phones to Star Trek and Adventure Time, Geekosystem runs the gamut of interests. In short, we cover the Internet and the things the Internet likes. We are become Internet. In order to keep up with all our shenanigans, you should follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and Pinterest. That is, if you don't already.

    Chronicle Our Descent Into Madness via Social Media

    The Internet is home to some of the best and some of the worst things that will ever beam into your eyeholes. From important, hard-hitting, world-changing news, to baby giraffes chasing butterflies, to ShayeSaintJohn, to giant waterbugs eating baby turtles, to whatever this horrifying thing is. The Internet is a roller coaster with only two types of track, up and down, both of which are directly adjacent to one another, infinitely repeating at dizzying angles. Since it is essentially our job to become one with the Internet so you don't have to, one of the best parts about Geekosystem is that you can watch our slow descent into madness via your social media platform of choice. We're everywhere. Omnipresent, if you will, and we're on the cusp of insanity. We are become Internet.

    We’re Giving Away Two Droid Charges, Here’s How to Win

    Hot on the heels of our $25 giftcard t-shirt giveaway (the winners for that will be announced soon), we have another fairly painless to participate in, pretty awesome giveaway. We have two Droid Charges just sitting around, being protected by our Pirates pieces. If you'd like to have a chance to win a new Droid Charge, complete with stalwart factory screen protector standing vigilant over the pretty screen, all you have to do is follow us on Twitter or Like us on Facebook, and we'll pick one winner from our pool of Twitter followers and one winner from our pool of Facebook followers and give them one Droid Charge each. You will only be eligible for one Droid Charge, but following us on both platforms will increase your odds of winning one, by way of fancy numerical magic. When the winners are chosen, we will contact them on the platform on which their winning entry was chosen. Also, do not worry, current Geekosystem followers, you're already entered in the drawing.

    Sounds simple, right? At this point, you might be narrowing your eyes and cautiously whispering "Too simple," while looking around for the flanking velociraptor, but rest assured, we're not the clever girl in this scenario. You'd be the clever girl for attempting to win a sweet new phone by expending the small amount of energy it takes to perform a few clicks. You want to have the same status as a velociraptor, don't you?

    So, the TL;DR of it is, if you want to win a sweet new Droid Charge (minus the pirate protectors), courtesy of Samsung, follow Geekosystem on Twitter and Like us on Facebook.

    Remember the Geekosystem Survey? You Could Still Win a $25 Gift Card for Fun T-Shirt Purchases

    You see that awesomely punny graphic up above? You can have that on a shirt! Or a breakfast cereal Castlevania mashup! Or ALF cooking his favorite meal! You want to sport those shirts around town, right? If you do us a favor and take this quick survey to tell us about yourself, you'll have a chance to land a $25 gift card from Splitreason, and can then walk around town proudly displaying your love of Castlevania and Count Chocula.

    If you're a little shy about telling us some basic information about yourself, we at Geekosystem will get the ball rolling with some of our darkest secrets: James Plafke doesn't dig The Lord of the Rings, and Eric Limer just couldn't get into Ocarina of Time, only one of the best video games ever made. What kind of geeks are they? Max Eddy once ate an entire can of jellied cranberry sauce by himself on a day that was not (or even close to) Thanksgiving, and it happened at a movie theater, and Geekosystem rogue contributor Rollin Bishop is terrified of pizza sauce (okay, maybe he just dislikes it and misses pizza parties because of that). The answers you'll be giving are more basic and much less embarrassing than the ones we just provided, so get to it!

    A Passing of the Torch

    Though it might not appear to be so to the casual reader, should he or she bother to wonder where these neatly wrapped daily blog posts come from, running a site like this is a full-time job. Since Geekosystem launched a year and a half ago, I have written 2,716 posts, some of which are works of analysis and reportage that I'm quite happy with, some of which may mildly embarrass me should they come up when someone is Googling me a few years down the road, and some of which appear to consist of little more than thinly repackaged cat videos. Note that there is little if any overlap between these last two groups. But all good things must come to an end, and as I prepare to head back to school this coming fall, this is my last post as managing editor of Geekosystem. That duty will pass along to James Plafke, in whom I have the utmost confidence not to crush and ruin the site that I have poured my time and energy into since its birth. (In truth, James is great and the site is in capable hands.)
