So what does this mean to everyone else? For one, the site does bear the potential to bring a lot of the strongest voices in the geek community together in one place. This would not only create a massive compilation of some the best content currently available on the web, but it has the potential to create serious change within the culture.More voices promoting our culture could never be a bad thing. If anything it may set the bar a little higher. If there is one thing geek culture could use it is more voices promoting who we are and what we stand for.
So are you going to check out this new site when it launches? Do you think it will be awesome, mediocre, or downright crap? Time to sound off below!
