A long time ago in 2012 in a milky way galaxy, I began what has become an annual August tradition around here: Geek Takeover Week. While most of the world is melting, traveling, or some combination of both, myself and other geeky guests takeover to post to the nerdiest topics that come to mind. It’s a 5 day detour of the usual and in case you’re new to the site or were too busy drinking something on some beach, these are the most popular Geek Takeover Week posts of the past 6 years.
