In this bonus episode Chuck and Juan podcast live to answer questions from chat about the upcoming 2012 GWC International Meetup in Dallas, TX March 16-18. If this is your first GWC podcast, you might want to look back (or ahead) one for a normal GWC experience. Announcements: Our block of rooms releases on February […]


Live Meetup Q&A This Tuesday, Feb. 7 at 8:00 p.m. CT

In the first week since we opened RSVPs and registration for the 2012 international meetup we’ve seen almost as many RSVPs as we had in all of last year. Clearly it’s gonna be a kick-ass time, as defined by the fact that some of the coolest people in the world (GWCers, natch) will be there. […]


Happy 2012! Meetup News! It’s Thursday!

Happy new year, everyone! I’m pretty excited about where GWC’s headed this year and thought I’d share a few bits of news and happenings. First, we’re making some SERIOUS progress on our plans for the 2012 International Meetup. We announced the date (March 16-18, 2012) on the forum back in November, but it’s taken us […]


Modern Geek #8: Unlimited Data, Hosting a Personal Blog

We talk a bit about the realities of “unlimited” data plans. We dive into the ins, outs, and available options for hosting a personal blog. And we address a listener concern: what to do when you want to share a Google+ meetup with someone local to you.


GWC #289: Happy 5th Birthday, GWC

This week GWC turned five, and we take this opportunity to relax, be self-referential, and tell a few of those “meetup only” stories we always mention. If this is your first time listening to GWC, you might want to check out the last (or next) podcast to get a better sample of what we normally […]



The Oxford English Dictionary is, well, the single standard reference of the English language. Printed, it comprises a 20 volume set that pretty much demands its own bookcase. The one pictured above is Audra’s copy, the “compact edition,” which literally compresses nine pages of the big version onto each single 11-1/4″ by 17.5″ page, resulting […]


GWC #282: San Diego Comic Con

We’re just back from San Diego Comic Con and we talk about our experiences there and some of the awesome new news to come out of the world’s biggest geekfest. We take you right into the ‘con, too, with an audience participation podcast segment recorded at the Friday night SDCC GWC meetup. And we run […]


GWC #281: Aircraft

We continue our vehicles in sci-fi arc with a discussion of aircraft — how they differ from spacecraft and what makes them special. Audra teases out the origins of Chuck’s Halo Scorpion fetish. And we run down the week in geek. If you’re in San Diego for Comic Con, we’d love to meet you. Check […]


2011 Community Meetup: A Short Video

Wonder what the 2011 GWC Community Meetup was all about? Or maybe missing your friends (old and new) from the event? Check out this short video and let us know what you think. Seriously, I’m buried in post-meetup blues. Seeing everyone in person that’s such a part of my life every week virtually makes for […]


GWC #263: 2011 Community Meetup Live Audience Podcast

This week we’re joined by the best guest ever: a room full of the GWC community! We introduce our next arc, the idea non-interference (known to Trek fans as the prime directive). And we run down the week in geek with lots and lots of heckling — and maybe a little too much 12-year-old Irish […]


The 2011 Meetup: From One Geek Of Many

The 2011 GWC meetup is coming to a close as I write this. This very minute the weary meetup goers are headed to find some stew at the last outpost of the weekends activities while others slowly gather themselves for the long voyage home. For the third year running I feel the need to express my admiration […]
