When I was reading the Twitter stream as it happened, it seemed to me that Wil was heading into 'dick' territory. This blog post clears things up a lot for me, for which I thank Wil. Context makes a huge difference. I also have a lot of personal experience with huge temper flare ups over matters that, in the clearer light of a slightly removed perspective, turn out to be unworthy of my wrath. That said, I think this suggests a clear corrolary for the 'Don't be a dick' byline, that being: 'We are all dicks from time to time' ;)

There are always idiots and jackasses to spare on the the Internet. I'm sorry, Wil, that one of them is screwing with you. I hate the sense of entitlement some people seem to possess. They act as if the world owes them "stuff" for free, "stuff" better than they themselves could ever imagine creating. To them theft isn't theft- if they can take it, it must be meant to be taken. It is nice to imagine that one day people will become less like the dick you describe. I like to believe that such people are not the majority. But I suspect we are breeding more and more of them, and it saddens me.

Interesting update to my previous comment- I see that Mr. Okuda also did a lot of work for NASA in terms of creating mission logos. It was right there, plain as day on his Wikipedia page, but I guess in my mind it was overwhelmed by his body of work on Star Trek.

I don't want to diminish the work of the actors, but Mike Okuda and the special effects/art folks were as much stars of Star Trek as the actors or the plot. Thousands of little touches that often were barely seen for a fraction of a second, yet the care and attention to each one is what made the whole great. I think it is particularly fitting that NASA is extending this honour, given the influence science fiction has on the minds and imaginations of so many scientists.
