I Am Loving Geek Week on YouTube!
As always, I'm late to the party ... but I've been hipped to the fact that it is Geek Week on YouTube.
Geek Week is a week-long virtual event where fans and users can view original content by some of their favorite nerd heroes. The interesting spin is that each day has a theme and special goodies called "Easter eggs" that you can find throughout the course of the week. (Check their Facebook page all week to see all the clues and hints.)
Here's one of the the Geek Week trailers:
Anyone who knows me, knows EXACTLY why I chose this particular one. <3 <3
- BlockBuster Sunday
- Global Geekery Monday
- Brainiac Tuesday
- Super Wednesday
- Gaming Thursday
- Fan Friday
- Best Of Saturday
In keeping with true nerd fashion, the Geek Week channel has badges that are unlocked once a channel or video is viewed. So far, I've only unlocked three -- but it's still early; I have hope!
There are about 16 badges, and most of them are based on the Easter Eggs that are hidden for the week. I've found these:

As a HUGE Felicia Day fan, I was excited to see her involvement in the campaign. She's starred in such geek cult classics as:
- Buffy The Vampire Slayer
- The Guild
- Dragon Age
- Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog
I mean, her work speaks for itself. She has a YouTube channel, Geek and Sundry, and has uploaded exclusive content for the week. I am so excited to see what she has in store. Also, I'm looking forward to seeing what The Nerdist will bring to the table.
