I would like to know if there is a sudden upsurge in the business of providing ostrich riding because of this app. Who wants to do an academic study?

But isn't that always the case? The 2% need more attention and thus the 98% who are backing you often go unnoticed. Thanks for noticing us 98%. I'll be happy to continue standing here, being polite. On a side note, thank YOU for using your "sway" for sending good things out to the universe. Thank you for setting an example worthy of the respect you have from so many out there.

Last year, I met you for the first time [embarrassed admission]and was so star struck I tripped over every word[/embarrassed admission] I was pregnant and wearing the epic shirt of pregnant awesome that said "Geek inside". This year, my daughter is 6 months old, and with husband deployed, we could not make the trek out. However, living vicariously through these stories is definitely helping to restore my HP/MP to get me by until next year when we intend to bring 18 month old gamer girl! Afterall, she's getting ahead of the curve already:

If you are called out and asked "so wait what do YOU advocate for?" from a lobby group that is supposed to representing the community in the way you were, I don't understand how it is out of line to say "how can you even ask me that?" Practically everything you do seems focused on representing the gaming community to the world and setting a positive example to other gamers. And it's not like you chose gaming to advocate for because it would bring you massive amounts of fame and money. You've found a way to turn your hobby/passion into a career. You advocate from a place of honesty; you promote from a place of genuineness that many other advocates try to capture but they miss. I have great respect for the work you do - whether written, acted, gamed, signed, etc. In the work you do, and being who you are, you advocate gaming by just exhaling. To not know this about you shows the speaker doesn't really know your current work. Perhaps they still focus on the Wil Wheaton from the 80's who was just a child star. The Wil of today, from my impression, is someone who embraces his hobby completely. Since your advocacy for gaming is so much a part of who you are -- or so it seems to me as just a voyeur to your life -- it is incredibly insulting to ask "what do YOU do to advocate for gaming?" Monetary contribution or assigning your name to a foundation doesn't necessarily increase the value of your advocacy. People can only be who they are, and who you are seems to be someone who believes in gaming and what gaming means. No, you weren't out of line. They should apologize as well. I appreciate that you did and I don't think I would have if I were in your shoes. But it proves me right again that you are a class-act and someone well deserving of the respect you have in the community and from me personally.

Your dad voice puts my mom voice to shame -- she gives in to the gaming way to often!

I'm incredibly fascinated with the power of the brain to teleport us back to those memories. Whether it's the light hitting the car in front of you a certain way, music playing, smells, locations... You were telling your story of your first encounter with 2001, and I don't know why that reminded me of Stephen King's Langoliers. Such a wonderful concept that affected me recently. I had been wrapped up in oversleeping my alarm (slightly intentionally) and my own version of "langoliers" came along into my dream to clean it up for me. The imagery of these creatures stuck with me, and I borrowed King's name for lack of a better one. The connection of your memory reminded me of the dream that had been lost for a while in my head. Thanks for not only sharing a great story but pulling that imagery out of my eccentric brain. :)
