Yay! RFB! RFB! Yeah, that first bit of music definitely sounded like an 8-bit soundtrack. I was thinking some of the end parts sounded like some of the early MegaMan music. Just FYI; your (presumably canned) out-tro says "copyright 2011". Suggestion: you've talked about it before, but your answer to the question about being seen as Wesley is, I think, a really good explanation of your feelings. You might make that a separate file somewhere and link to it from your FAQ page (if you have one). Sort of like Adam Savage making a video about how to make ballistics gel so that he didn't have to answer everyone e-mailing him that question any more. Love it. Keep it up! Craig Steffen @gevmage

Congratulations Wil and Pals! Go Kings! I'm a pointy-football sportsball fan, but I do understand. We have watched games like that at our house. Reading the twitter stream last night was lots of fun. Good luck next year!

Almost anything from _Memories of the Future_ would kill. Highlights for me are the episode with Lore ("DataLore"?) and the one with the Edo ("Eden"?). Your review of the "Encounter at Farpoint" was really good too. Your current perspective as someone who has an insiders perspective as to how TV works, looking at it as a pilot, and looking back at yourself and your own work is really really cool. Stories with Anne in them are always hilarious. Her dry humor and non-nerd background make a great juxtaposition with you. I love the opening monologue that you do as part of w00tstock, but I presume you probably don't do that as a solo non-w00tstock piece. Can't wait to see the latest Wil-Wheaton enhanced BBT! Take care, Craig Steffen @gevmage

Awesome story! And I don't see why you wouldn't tell Ryan that you complemented his evil in a Darth Vader voice. I ended up playing, possibly Settlers of Cataan, in the game room at 3am at Penguicon with Eric (S.) and Kathy Raymond (and someone else I didn't know). That was super-cool and super-surreal.

I saw the tweets late, so I watched the recorded versions. That was really super-cool. It's very neat to be taken behind the scenes of someone's life. It's a very sharing thing and very cool and generous of you to do. I would absolutely throw money over the wall to see that sort of thing as a performance piece. Back-stage at a concert or something would be a great venue. And as cliche' as that is, it IS very cool to see where the magic happens. Thanks! I hope you do it again! If you give a bit of warning I'll be sure to watch live! Bummer about the show tonight. Hope the re-schedule goes well. Everyone stay safe! Craig Steffen @gevmage

Oh, as far as waking up and not knowing where you are: I have an Android phone, the audible alarm starts at a barely perceptible level and slowly ramps up the volume. I find it's a big help to waking up gently without a massive adrenaline surge. And actually, there's an app that uses the accelerometer to measure when you're having a period of shallow sleep, and will wake you up when that happens if it's in the target window. Very cool.

Technobabble? Awesome! In a rehearsal take, you should totally throw in "reconfigure the main navigational deflector" and see if anyone notices.

Your analogy is reasonable. The post existed on your laptop while you drove to the coffee shop, in a state such that it was stable but not portable. Once you got to the coffee shop, by connecting to the internet, you promoted it to an energy state where it could slide easily through the intertubes to our screens. Since quantum mechanics describes ONLY the behavior of the very small, it has problems when extended directly to the macroscopic (which the idea of Shroedinger's cat is an illustration). You extended the notion as well as it could be. The eigenvalue then is just a scalar logical value indicating if the post is visible to the world. Every eigenvalue has to have a corresponding operator; the operator is a complicated set of tests of whether or not if you point our browser at wilwheaton.typepad.com, you get a certain character string that's in the post. Why yes, I am procrastinating, why do you ask? :-D
