Chris Hardwick has been a busy beaver!

Not only has he recently inked a pilot deal with BBC America based on his super popular Nerdist podcast, he’s also releasing a book in November, continuing on with his podcasting duties and and as Deadline tells us, that he’s just sold 50 percent interest in Nerdist Industries to nerdy online hub GeekChicDaily in efforts to invest in further multi-platforming and cross-leveraging of audiences.

In non-new media speak, Hardwick’s attracting lots of new audience members and lots of new outlets for his comedy. With any hope, this is further proof that geeks and nerds will soon – if we don’t already – rule the world.
