I was great to see you again Wil. Also super great to finally get to meet (and sell merch) with your wife, that was pretty awesome. Here is hoping you can set aside the time and funds to go to PAX East, otherwise, likely see you again at PAX Prime. --Dan

Wil: Just wanted to say it was great running past you every time I was out on shift and an access point decided it didn't want to serve internet to all the deserving folks at PAX. You had a wonderful panel, I really wish that I had the ability to be in two places at once, when I got back to the Ops office following your panel Maradine and Tetujin told me you had stopped by on your way up to the panel...would have loved to have been there. Oh well...getting to see your panel will have to do. Can't wait for w00tstock SF, see you there. -- Dan (PAX Ops Enforcer 2009)

PAX is only a week away...god that's frightening...at least I get time off of my Enforcer duties to see your panel. Also...great show tonight, as an ex-Gentoo developer I always get a kick out of faked *nix systems on TV shows.

And here I thought we had all learned all you need is your towel and your thumb.

I think the following post from Neil proves the most poignant to me. Just on the merits of making books accessible to others the Kindle's text2speech is a winner in my book. If you haven't read the post, read it, internalize it, and make your own call. http://journal.neilgaiman.com/2009/02/zoom-zzzzoom.html

Thanks... Now I just have to decided if the Subterranean Press version of Happiest Days needs to be added to the copy I got from you at the same time... Stop re-releasing things in a shinier format! Shiny things attract my eyes...much like a cat in that respect... In any event, would be happy to post a review of the Sunken Treasure I do own, would Lulu be the right location?

Wil: So here's a question... I own #11 of the original Lo-Fi version of Sunken Treasure which I picked up in San Jose last year. What is new in this version outside of the more Hi-Fi-ness of it? My compulsive need to own the complete works of all authors I respect wants to know (a). if I should purchase another copy and (b). if not if a review of my Lo-Fi version would still be applicable. Thanks, --Dan

Now you just need to get someone to do an evil, yet awesome, black velvet representation of that photo and the circle of evil will be complete!!!

How interesting that you have a Life Beyond Wesley panel considering you aren't quite beyond him yet... Matter of fact he's competing directly with you in the second bracket of Paul and Storm's Geek Madness: The Battle For Secretary of Geek Afairs. http://www.paulandstorm.com/tournament/images/jorel_lg.jpg Yes, you read that right, you beat Bruce Campbell and Wesley beat Dilton Doiley..so who want to place bets on who's going to make it to the Geek 16, Wesley or Wil? Voting in the 2nd round of the Jor-El Region begins Sunday, January 25th at 7PM EST. Vote early and good luck Wil.

A slightly off topic comment... I am not a writer, what draws me to Wil's blog has always been the more techie side of things. As a linux developer it is what I am drawn to. That being said, I think the comments in response to this post are among the most awesome of any I have read on any blog...almost inspires me to write something down...

Wil: Was great meeting you today. Always good chatting with someone who feels as passionately about open source as I do. Keep up the great work, and keep it Creative Commons! Thanks, --Dan

Wil: What are your plans for Super-Con? Doing a reading or just signing and such? Will certainly come by to get something signed though...looking forward to it.
