Midwest Gaming Classic pt 1: Wandcrafters

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | RSS Midwest Gaming Classic While down at the Midwest Gaming Classic, I started on the vendor floor to see all the cool items you can purchase. Video games, Pinball machines, parts for machines, game consoles and more. Old consoles, game swag and more. I ran into Carol, from Wandcrafters. They make wizard’s wands. Using a lathe, Carol has expanded the process to keychains, magnifying glasses and more. They even had some pens made from cell phone boards. Wandcrafters has also created wands out of antlers that were shed. She sticks mostly to wood for her designs. This is the 10th anniversary for the Midwest Gaming Classic.

Geekazine 1 year Anniversary

Well, it was 366 days ago that the first posts for Geekazine surfaced (Leap Year, ya know). It’s been a little longer for the podcasts. Nonetheless, this site went live on November 7th 2007. Since then we’ve had over 175 podcasts and video casts, over 400 posts, a few posts and some people got some great swag. We’ve talked with some great names in the last year – from Bryce Whittey from Technibble, Josh Chandler, to Jeri Ellsworth. I would first like to thank everyone for a great first year. I would like to thank the sponsors: Gotomeeting.com, Careersaver.com are the two main ones. I would also like to thank all who have sent donations to the site. Thanks to Norbert Davis from TCTPodcast.com for all the Cool Tech Corner episodes. Thanks to the cast at Techpodcasts, Blubrry and Raw Voice for making a great community. Thank you...
