Perpetual Geek Machine’s Top Thing of 2011 (and the runner-ups)

2011-header

Yesterday we posted our last podcast of the year, in which each of us presented our top 5 things of 2011. From that we then came up with a group of items and debated which things we should have represent Perpetual Geek Machine for 2011. We decided to eschew a standard top 5 list and instead pick one singular thing, and then have runner-ups in no particular order.

It was one of our finest shows to date and combined all 5 of the main writers here on the site! I can’t recommend it enough, and would love it if you listen and if you like it please share it with your friends.

But if you don’t want to listen, or you’d just like to read the results please join us after the break for our individual lists as well as our choice for Perpetual Geek Machine Thing of 2011!

The Perpetual Geek Machine #1 Thing of 2011!
