Are you a Geek?
Are you a dreamer? A lover of stories? A thinker of deep thoughts or a teller of tall tales?
We’re called a lot of things: artist, poet, nerd, misfit.
Even a “geek.”
It used to be out of fashion to be considered a geek. Those of us who were, well we were considered the weird ones. Long-term residents on the “Island of Misfit Toys.” Polite society (usually in the form of our parents or the “in” clique of “the beautiful people” at school) thought it odd we gathered late at night to do the “Time Warp (Again)” or celebrate en masse at summertime conventions dressed in costumes of our favorite comic book characters.
But after a while, we came to realize there’s a little geek in all of us. Our flights of fancy help keep our everyday lives a little more livable. The lesson learned from this insight – for us self-realized geeks, anyway – is simple and direct …
… we are not alone.
Welcome to the Post-Geek Singularity (the PGS)Embrace that inner-geek you’ve been keeping buried inside of you and become part of our community of Imagination Connoisseurs. The PGS is a dynamic place that includes this website, several virtual communities, and an array of streaming platforms that offer original video and audio content on a variety of subjects.
News, information, articles, and reviews (and a little more). Our website is the nerve center of the PGS – the nexus of fan communities, experts in the fields of genre entertainment, and creative artists who write and make the things we love.
Whether you prefer to browse our social media (i.e. Twitter, Instagram, and Reddit, to name a few), or participate in our online communities on YouTube, Facebook and Discord – PGS moderators are there to make sure community members are kind and respectful to one another. But most of all, they’re there to make sure everyone is having a good time.
Our stories, streams, and shows
PGS Content Partners create new stories, articles, reviews, shows, and conversations for our members every day. You’ll find the most recent content posted on our homepage, and you’ll find all of our content linked to this website – usually on the landing pages for each blog or show or in the fan galleries, reviews, and letters sections.
The geeks behind the PGS
Originally formed in 2019 as The Burnettwork, the term “Post-Geek Singularity” was coined early on by Robert Meyer Burnett as he tried to explain how it was no longer a bad thing to be considered a nerd or a geek and that the “Golden Age of Streaming Television” had opened the door for more and more people to become fans of “genre” entertainment.All of the different “geek” cultural interests were starting to be acquired, rebooted, and re-launched by major entertainment corporations – like a black hole pulling in other interstellar bodies to feed itself.
Rob was soon joined by friend and fellow collaborator, Mike Bawden, and the two have worked together to build the PGS community as a viable, ongoing operation that has now been incorporated into their production company, Imagination Connoisseurs Unlimited, LLC.
Sharing the creativity of fellow Imagination Connoisseurs
An integral part of the PGS community experience is the sharing of original content created and produced for it by Burnett, Bawden, and a team of independent creators referred to as “Content Partners.” This material is produced collaboratively with ICU and Content Partners are able to receive results-based compensation for their efforts.

Conversation is a two-way street
Of course, it’s not enough to just take in the creative works of our content partners, we expect Imagination Connoisseurs to have an opinion and be willing to share it with others. That’s why we have three, online communities (on Facebook, YouTube, and Discord) where you can make friends, enjoy some friendly banter, and share your own thoughts and observations about the things you love most.
There is no cost to becoming an Imagination Connoisseur in the Post-Geek Singularity. All you need to do is join a group, find some shows, podcasts or articles you enjoy, and then make friends by talking about the things you love. It’s easy – and it’s free.*
If you’re already on Facebook, check out the PGS Community on Facebook. Not on Facebook, you’re always welcome to join us in The Post-Geek Singularity – hosted on a private Discord server. And if you’re interested in providing some financial support to the cause, you can always join our PGS on YouTube community and take advantage of the live events and exclusive, “Members Only” streams.
Our online forums are managed by a dedicated group of volunteers – fellow Imagination Connoisseurs – who help us keep the discussions lively, on-point, and cordial. Good moderation of our online groups and the kindness shown between members of the PGS are the things that help make the community stand out as something new and different. And we couldn’t do it without our moderating team.
If you’re interested in helping out (either now or in the future), we hope you’ll consider sending us an application.
Do you have questions? We have answers. Usually.
There are always questions that we haven’t considered. We keep track of them on our FAQ page. Who knows, maybe we’ve already answered the question you have on your mind.
But if we haven’t, there’s a way to send us your question and we’ll respond directly to you AND post the answer (with your question) on our FAQ page.
* While the Facebook and Discord communities are free, the PGS on YouTube community requires a paid membership. Memberships are available at monthly a cost of: $.99, $5, $15 or $25 per month with different levels of exclusive benefits available at each level.
