  • 2017 was the best because….

Dave Hisaka I enjoyed working on this website, we’re small, but we are growing and I believe we have a great family.

Josie Price Marriage Equality happening around the world

Monica Duarte I finally started doing the geeky things that I always wanted to do. I did not let fear ruled me. I dug into photography, writing, allowing myself to be on camera, podcasting and so much more. And I am far from good, but the more I do. The better I will get. And sharing what you love with the world is very special.

Matthew Wells we’re at a point where geeky fandom is so ubiquitous that it has no choice but to evolve and get good, or die to another marketing bloat like in the 90s.
