Yeah, I agree with mike_le. Lessons learned… Still: w00tstock! Oh, and anyone looking for the halls and schedule and such can use the handy schedule search dingus on the Comic-Con site: http://sched.comic-con.org/ You can even share your own schedule like so: http://sched.comic-con.org/chris_radcliff (Just sayin'.)

Great! Another square filled in on my Wil Appears On My Favorite Shows bingo card. When you announce a guest appearance on Doctor Who, I win!

One of the things I love about Twitter is that it lets me listen in on conversations between my childhood* heroes. * OK, adulthood heroes. Who am I kidding? I just watched a pair of TNG eps last night.

No spoilers! I don't want to go into it with my mind pre-blown. Seriously, though, I'm looking forward to it. I'll be watching it Tuesday on my... um... television! Yes, that's it! Utilizing approved and not-shady-at-all means to receive the transmission as originally sent, with legal and pre-approved technologies to lovingly and gently time-shift it. No computers involved at all. Nope!

Has anyone noticed the similarity between Admiral Ackbar and Cthulu? Coincidence? I think not!

Downloadering now... At first I figured I wouldn't get anything out of these because I've read and re-read the TV Squad articles, but dammit if you aren't entertaining and insightful anyway. In other words, thanks and keep 'em coming.

Holy carp! That was awesome. With the Big Bang Theory announcement, my internets are exploding with Wil Wheaton delight.

It's at the top of the iTunes music video charts today, and deserves to be there.

I shall do all within my power to be there, where "all within my power" involves convincing someone to drive.

Really well done! The bit about "As a writer/geek, geek/writer..." was particularly awesome. She was obviously a ringer ;) but it must feel good to have a major media outlet really get it. Oh, and just think about how much blog-ready humor would come from your braces/invisalign experiences. Might pay for itself!

Yes, we know! Really, Wil, with all the amazing writing you give us for free-gratis-no-cash-money already, I doubt anyone is really going to kvetch about seeing the same story under two different covers. If they do, I have one word for them: RAWR. But yeah, OMGhawking! And he's talking about space. And I bet there'll be ponies. It'll suck to drive from SD to Pasadena in Monday rush hour, and we'll need an overnight babysitter, but it's totally worth it!

[singing] Wil and GeekDad, sittin' in a tree... [/singing] Seriously, though, a short collection is better than no collection, as long as the quality is there. I enjoyed Dancing Barefoot just as much as Just a Geek; length isn't an issue because the basic unit of both books is the story. Just don't try to get by with a chapbook-length novel and you'll be OK. On an unrelated note but still awesome, are you going to the Caltech Stephen Hawking lecture next month?

"get crushered in the second round" *eyeroll* Seriously, though, we already know you can beat Wesley. It's Stephen Hawking you should be worried about.

Jonathan Coulton did a shirt contest recently, and the results were amazing. I think he used Pixish, but that's the extent of my half-remembered knowledge.

Yesss! And have you seen the awesome Cinema-Display-sized desktop backgrounds on his site? So much of the goodness.

Signing at Mysterious Galaxy! Signing at Mysterious Galaxy! Signing at Mysterious Galaxy! I'm totally there, dude. It's been *years* since the last one. Be sure to remind them that you and your 76 closest SD friends will descend upon them, so they need to have lots of copies on hand.

Definitely use in-blog pages. They're amazingly convenient. I recently created a friend's site entirely in Wordpress even though it's not technically a blog, because it was so simple to use and easy to style. It took care of the hard bits, and I was free to work on the style and organization. I was even able to create her an account so she could manage content on her own. Nice!

Congrats, Wil! You're an awesome speaker, and they're lucky to get you. Just concentrate on the three pillars of public speaking (monkeys, pirates, and robots) and you'll do fine. I added you to the PAX 2007 event on Eventful and updated the Seattle demand to match. Enjoy, Seattle!

Wow. Just wow. I sometimes wonder why I'm so diligent about reading every WWDN entry, even when my feed reader piles up. This story answered that by knocking me on my butt. Thanks, Wil, for sharing that so eloquently. And personal thanks for opening my eyes about the butterfly trees my son will face someday.
