This Saturday, November 17, 2012, I will be appearing on the Abt Electronics Holiday Gift Guide Blogger Panel which will be taking place at the ABT Electronics Store in Glenview , IL. I'll be joining the likes of Marcus LeShock and Nancy Loo of WGN TV (along with other tech bloggers) to take a look at some of the most sought-after tech items for the holiday season! I'm really psyched to be a part of this first-ever blogger panel and would love to see some of my Geek To Me readers out there.

A whole 291 days after becoming a father, celebrity blogger Perez Hilton has found his way onto a reality show about fatherhood. Hilton is developing and slated to star in “Gay Dads of New York,” a new reality show from the producers of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and “Project Runway.” Vulture.com reports that the Bunim/Murray-produced series will be a “docu-style reality show,” and does not have a network assignment at...

Yahoo has a new CEO, and she's a woman! But that's not the real news. The headliner in this story is Marissa Mayer is hot; she's like "the hottest CEO ever" according to bloggers on Reddit, who you have to assume are either 13-year-old boys or men still living with the effects of an all-boys high school. Of course, there has been pixalized backlash throughout the ether, but there is a definite lack of shock or surprise that bloggers commented on the 37-year-old former Googlite's appearance.

September 10, 2013 | Soxman, for Geek To Me
Starting this week, I will be engaging Chicago's #1 White Sox fan SOXMAN in a war of words as we go up against each other in our fantasy football league. Yes, Chicago's King of Geeks (thanks for the moniker Laurence Holmes !) is also a die-hard Cubs fan, so this is kind of like Luke Skywalker going up against a rather smelly Tusken Raider who's been riding a bantha all day under the hot twin-suns of Tatooine. I mean, have you ever stood next to Soxman during a game?

Len Kendall and his longtime friends Tyler Travitz and John Geletka had two principles in mind when they created their soon-to-launch startup. “We wanted something that's beneficial to the world but that's also a sustainable business.” The solution the three West Town residents came up with is CentUp , a service that will allow fans of online content to donate money to its creators with the simple click of a button. Here's how it works: Anyone with a web site and a basic knowledge of HTML can have a CentUp button installed on his or her site (it works exactly the way...

You've probably seen SoYeahDuh by now, yeah? Locals have driven themselves into a tizzy about the hilariously accurate GIF depictions of being a young 20-something Chicagoan with a certain amount of disposable income. The Based God Kevin Aeh even has a poll going guessing to the identity of who's behind the account. Because the streets have been asking (and because f**k work, right? It's Friday before Memorial Day weekend ), I corresponded with the person behind the account and got some insight into the mind of a GIF master.

**1/2 (out of four) Purity Ring's rise to indie prominence follows what is now a familiar narrative. Distant collaborators create tracks over email. Said handful of tracks get enormously hyped by eager bloggers. Collaborators embark on tour on the strength of those tracks. Within a year, the group is headlining the Pitchfork Festival side stage - all before ever releasing an actual album. It speaks to the odd climate of the contemporary music industry that the release of the group's debut, “Shrines,” serves almost as a retrospective.

If Jay-Z and Kanye West didn't think their collaboration was an event, they wouldn't have called it "Watch the Throne. " In terms of modesty, these guys exist somewhere between "none" and "LeBron James. " Of course, public response certainly has matched the project's self-satisfaction. Bloggers breathlessly dissected early singles "H.A.M. " and "Otis"; a freaking New York planetarium housed the record's listening party; and the album's stunningly un-leaked release brought music fans together, at least on Twitter, for a day of collective listening.

Union Sushi & Barbeque Bar 230 W. Erie St. 312-662-4888 Rating: !!! (out of 4) Off to a good start The story: Ever read food blog “Mike & Chao Chow”? This River North sushi and kushiyaki bar is the brainchild of friends and co-bloggers Mike Schatzman and Worachai “Chao” Thapthimkuna, a former Sushi Wabi chef. The scene: A towering wire sculpture and crayon-bright murals provide lots to look at, while the soundtrack alternates between head-nodding oldies and clubby beats.
