When I started working on io9 in 2007, we didn’t have a name for the site yet. We hadn’t come up with any real plans for how we were going to cover science fiction, science and futurism. But there was already a central idea that the site was based around: That science fiction is for absolutely everybody who enjoys it.
Every weekday, io9 has a list of strange, wonderful or ranty items. These top 10 (or 12, or 20) lists are a way to make our obsessive tendency to collect random stuff into something that can help distract other people. So here are the 20 most popular superlists that io9 published in 2014.
Come party with us! If you're in San Francisco on Tues. Dec. 2, we wanna meet you. io9 is having a meet-up at Borderlands Cafe @ 870 Valencia, from 6 to 8 PM. We will eat all the cookies. Don't miss it!

One of the biggest questions people have asked about the io9 redesign is: How will you deal with spoilers? Allow us to explain.
Ah, October. The nights are cooler, the stars are brighter, Caprica and Fringe are back on the air, and new trailers for Monsters and Skyline are debuting. Also, Gotham City by way of Van Gogh. Enjoy.
What's cooking in io9's lab? We had our Mad Science Week and talked about air particles and computer viruses and futurism. We also remembered the time Captain Janeway turned into an amphibian by flying in a spaceship too fast. WHOA.
This week, True Blood wrapped up, subatomic particles remained perplexing, and Panzer 88 showed us Nazis versus eldritch nasties. Oh, and here's Neil Gaiman as a furry version of himself from the October 25 episode of PBS kids' show Arthur.
What happened on io9 this week? A conversation with Resident Evil's Paul W.S. Anderson and retrofuturism from the New York Times circa 1909. Also, here's a video of a guy having a bad trip at a screening of 2001. Enjoy.
Wotta week that was. You talked with Peter Wingfield of Highlander, those damn dirty apes invaded San Francisco, and physics had to explain an impossible soccer kick. Also, here's a massive trailer for almost every film of the modern age!
What a week! We kicked off Science Fiction 101 to share our love of all things scifi. We also talked to Eli Roth and pondered exorcisms and piranha-induced castrations. Finally, here's a totally baffling kaiju dance video just because!
It may be sultry out, but we feel a nip of fall in the air. That's why we rounded up the best TV coming your way autumn 2010, as well as other scifi goodies that made a splash this week.
Oh look, it's Bryan Lee O'Malley's interpretation of Emma Frost. How ribald! The White Queen here is kicking off our best of this week, which included reflections on Max Headroom and conversations with Robert Kirkman, Jason Schwartzman, and China Miéville.
What happened in scifidom in the last seven days? The Lost DVD footage popped up, we talked to Seth Green about Star Wars, paleontologists debunked our favorite dinosaur, electrons were viewed in real-time, and more!
Oh, what a week that was. Inception put audiences in a topspin and the roaring drums of Comic Con are a-booming. Oh, and Sinestro pretended to be gay. Here are some other pieces for your consideration.
It's a long weekend, and that means only one thing: marathon! Over at io9's Facebook page, we're discussing which DVD box sets we're breaking out for the long haul.
Check out #ThursdayTales, a new reader-generated feature at io9 that started yesterday. A group of io9 commenters, led by the formidable Gaudy Mouse Muad'Dib, started a severely cool new practice of sharing links to new short stories they'd written. After just one day of #ThursdayTales, there's already a wealth of…
