This evening’s edition of The Event Horizon welcomes special guest Michelle Jensen, creator of the new social event calendar app for geeks like us called Nerd Out.
Michelle Jensen works in television post production by day, but by night she’s the entrepreneur and mastermind behind what could become one of the most important single apps in geekdom: a region based event calendar for nerds. Listing geek and nerd oriented events near you, Nerd Out is the social event listing we’ve all been waiting for.
A hand-maintained list of conventions and gatherings from all over the world is presented at your fingertips, wherever you go, and it’s free for Android and iPhone. This is what venture capitalists tend to call “disruptive technology”, in that it tends to create a fundamental change in the way we do things.
Tune in at 9 pm PST / 12 pm EST this evening as your hosts Susan L. Fox and Gene Turnbow welcome Michelle to the microphone. The show airs again tomorrow, March 6 at 4 pm PST / 7 pm EST, and then at 4 am PST / 7 am EST on the subsequent Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
The Event Horizon — it’s Sci-Fi for your Wifi.
Editor’s note: The appearance of Michelle Jensen on The Event Horizon was not the result of advertising or consideration given to SCIFI.radio by Nerd Out. Instead, we decided to donate ad time and space to them once we had spoken with her because we think everybody should know about this. It could literally transform fandom as a social construct.
SCIFI.radio is listener supported sci-fi geek culture radio, and operates almost exclusively via the generous contributions of our fans via our Patreon campaign.
