Dan Abrams Enters the Geekosystem

Mediaite publisher Dan Abrams is looking to gain a toehold in the technology arena with the launch of Geekosystem, which covers “geek culture” topics including tech news, movies, science fiction, video games and superheroes in comics, TechCrunch reported.

Editor Robert Quigley told TechCrunch Geekosystem will present a mix of coverage rather than being tied solely to tech giants and start-ups, adding that the site is staffed by two editors, an intern and contributors.

Quigley wrote in a post titled Enter the Geekosystem: An Introduction:

Our goal is nothing less than to unite all of the tribes of geekdom under one common banner. The truth of the matter is, there’s a lot of overlap between the different families of geekery. The geeks who are into gadgets and computers are often the same as the geeks who are into comics and sci-fi are often the same as the geeks who are fueling the culture of the Web, one forum or image board at a time. As the site’s name suggests, Geekosystem recognizes and celebrates these interconnections and the often-overlooked personalities who hold it all together. Live together, die alone!

If you’re like us, you probably already have a go-to gadget site. You might get your social-news fix at a Reddit or a Digg or a Hacker News. You certainly know where you can find lulz-inducing videos and pictures and flowcharts. Geekosystem is not here to disrupt your diet of information, though we think you will find us a worthy and nutritious supplement.

In addition to our spiffy weekly Power Grid, which you can read more about via this FAQ, Geekosystem seeks to give you a unique kind of home and refuge. But we’ll need your help. Above all, we want this to be a discussion and not a talking-down-to, and we want you to talk back, share your expertise, call us out when you think we are being dumb. We will be in the trenches of the comment sections with you. This is the stuff we love and obsess about, and we hope you will come along for the journey.
