Geek Instagram Week in Review – Nov 7, 2012

Featured Image

Okay, that title is a bit of a misnomer. We've got a whole lot more than a week included in this first collection of Instagram images from Geek Magazine. And it just so happens that you're now able to look through our entire collection on your mobile device AND via any web browser: GeekExchange is on Instagram! (on the web, not just on your phone!)

The best way to peek into the oddly-tinted and/or washed-out lives of our event-going editors is to follow us by either searching for “geekexchange” or “geek magazine”. And if you’re already a follower, then you’ve seen exclusive on-the-fly shots from Disney studios, gaming launch parties, and any number of comic-cons from around the country. We’ll try to make this a semi-regular series so that those of you without Instagram can see where we’ve been. The Instagram app is available on both iOS and Android devices.
