Geekly World News for June 2021

It’s summer! Kids are out (or almost out) of school for the summer, and after more than a year of pandemic-induced stress, I’m excited to relax a bit thanks to vaccination. Here in Texas, summer also means 100+ degree heat, but we combat it with water activities and A/C. Recently, we celebrated Geek Pride Day—which has another layer when your actual job is Head Geek—and spoke about some of our favorite things as geeks. We’ll be sharing more of our thoughts on this soon, and we hope you join in the celebrations of geekdom. Have a great June!
