Let’s get this thing started!

The idea behind LightningOctopus is highlighting fun and unusual media and events, with an emphasis on local happenings, artists, and communities here in the Phoenix Metro Area. My hope is that you find something new to love (that might have been under your radar), and maybe become part of something you really enjoy.

The Local page includes a calendar that is growing into a comprehensive list of interesting goings-on in the valley, as well as a growing map of local businesses that mesh with geek culture. Subscribe to the blog to stay up to date!

I’m impressed with the plethora of interesting things going on here, and the people involved and making them happen. Let’s learn more about them and lend our support!

If you want to know how you can help, check out the Participate page for a short list of easy things you can do.

Have fun!
