This week on the GeekWire Show, we explain Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’ plan to build a 10,000-year clock inside a Texas mountain; talk about Sir Mix-A-Lot’s latest technological innovations; and offer a reality check on the rumors that Seattle’s PopCap Games — maker of “Bejeweled” and “Plants vs. Zombies” — is in talks to be acquired for more than $1 billion.
Then we’re joined by Robert Khoo, president of Penny Arcade, the Seattle-based media company behind the hit Penny Arcade webcomic, Penny Arcade TV, and the popular Penny Arcade Expos — a.k.a. the guys who bring 70,000 gaming fanatics to downtown Seattle each year. It’s a great story, and we had fun talking with Robert about Penny Arcade’s growth and its unusual approach.
Here’s the MP3 file for this week’s show.
