Orlando Overdrive 2018 Review
For a few hours on a Saturday night, I and many other geeks, nerds, and various weirdos (I say this with affection since I’m including myself among them, of course) got to experience a small taste of the old days when Nerdapalooza and Orlando Nerd Fest ruled the summers.
