Cali Lewis has been producing a daily tech news show for 6 years, but the new-and-even-better GeekBeat was officially launched in the summer of 2010, thanks to a vibrant partnership with John Pozadzides, founder of Woopra and HTMLHelp.com.
The GeekBeat show is distributed online in pre-recorded formats via Revision3, and also syndicated nationally on cable TV by the Youtoo network. Geek Beat served nearly 20 million online video views in 2011, and continues to grow at an amazing rate.
As GeekBeat viewership and social media surges grew, the site began to experience downtime with the dedicated server they relied on. In 2011, GeekBeat chose to convert the site’s design to one based on the Genesis framework and re-launch the new site on our Synthesis WordPress hosting. As a result, the site’s load time was reduced from 7.5 seconds to 1.4 seconds and it survived (and thrived) throughout the 2012 Consumer Electronic Show and MacWorld without a single moment of downtime.
