Wil, I'm posting this here since I know not if Twitter is the proper vehicle for the question: Will you be Delving at PAX East? There is very little info regarding what will *actually take place* at the event (first con ever, btw) -- and WotC hinted they will be there as well. I'm trying to make sure I sign up for the "good stuff" when I arrive. Yes, it's still a month away, but I was hoping more info would be out by now.

Wil, any chance of tossing up a red-inked PDF of that at some point? I know you're swamped, but it could be fun. Great story, as always!

This post reminded me of something I've been meaning to ask you for a little while. As a writer, do you find yourself looking at the world a bit differently than before? Do you catch yourself being a bit more observational -- trying to take in all of a given place/scene/moment instead of just "being" somewhere? Have you caught yourself running through the description of a place in your head? I catch myself doing these things sometimes (it's quite interesting what you can notice in a given place if you're willing to look; I'm an avid people watcher) and often don't even realize I'm doing it.

I hate to add to the pile. I'm fairly proficient at math and science (I've got an ME degree), but I'm much better at grasping concepts than applying them. This is why I loved Fabric of the Cosmos by Brian Green. It's heady, but not too much. I had some great teachers in high school and college that helped foster my curiosity, but they also proved I had some sort of aptitude for math. I should probably go back and thank them at some point. As for marveling at the real world; I actually still marvel at "mundane" things such as bridges, airplanes, some buildings, and most heavy equipment. Sitting back to realize the amount of ingenuity and effort involved in creating them still boggles my mind.
