This is a kick in the guts for geeks like me, who had come to love each episode of Geekbrief and have always found a ton to enjoy in each one (including the ever-wonderful out-takes at the end of most episodes). After nigh on 800 episodes of shiny, happy tech news, I must admit to being rather sad to see GeekBrief go. It's been a staple part of my media intake for years now, and Cali Lewis is one of the most pleasant presenters in the business. I can't help but feel for Cali and Neal as their long-running series ends, and can understand Cali's visible distress in this final instalment. We'll miss you GeekBrief.
The final episode of GeekBrief TV:
However, it would seem that Cali's time as a geek show presenter is far from over. As well as her continuing work in the social media industry and its many marvellous outlets, she's coming back on June 28th with a brand new show, GEEKBEAT! This new show is being brought to us from Revision 3 (home of DIGGNATION, THE TOTALLY RAD SHOW, HAK 5 and many more of the finest online shows available). I don't know a great deal about this show yet, but from what I gather, it's set to be much along the same lines as GeekBrief TV was. We shall soon see.
The Geek Beat intro video:
I'm gonna miss GeekBrief in a big way, but as long as Cali Lewis is showing up in my feed, I'll know that I'll never be short of cool stuff to check out on a regular basis.
So thanks for the years of great shows, Cali and Neal. Good luck for the future to both of you!
