YouTube Geek Week: A week dedicated to geeks starting August 4th


It’s cool now to be a nerd/geek. I’m not sure if nerds and geeks are still getting picked on and getting wedgies in school, but at least they are getting some love on the internet. YouTube is having a week dedicated to geeks with Geek Week from August 4-10, 2013.

Being produced with The Nerdist, Geek Week will showcase more than 100 geek channels by unveiling new videos, series premieres and awesome collaborations, including the exclusive premiere of Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World trailer.
