Geekadelphia has been around for ten years.
The little site that appeared in late November 2007—a year or two before I’d even meet its founders—will be coming to a peaceful conclusion. Tim and Eric‘s (for the last time, not that Tim and Eric) little blog that’s spawned the Philly Geek Awards, thousands of articles and countless opportunities will be going on indefinite hiatus at the end of this month. To be clear, that’s this website.
I know this might come as a surprise.
No, this is not a joke. I’m being serious.
As we move on, I want to make a few things clear:
- The site isn’t actually going anywhere for now. We just won’t be posting regular content anymore. Thus, “indefinite hiatus.”
- Our social media accounts and presence won’t be going anywhere. We’ll be there, promoting new projects and local ongoings as we always have. Probably on a reduced basis.
- No changes to the Philly Geek Awards. Our annual award show will be continuing as normal, with our partners Technically Philly and Generocity.
So what’s next?
We’ll be posting regular content through the end of the month. You may see a few farewell notes and goodbye letters. There might be articles reflecting on the decade that’s gone by. After that, it’s the great beyond. Whatever that means, I’m just trying to be profound. This is rather difficult to communicate.
