I'm really glad Phoenix makes you feel welcome and even gladder to hear you want to return, again. It is always great to see you and hear your perspective on oh so many things. I loved when you said that your heros were teachers [being a teacher] and how the different teachers had made your who you are. I double loved to hear of you were proudest of raising your two step sons and how Ryan asked you to adopt you [and how the rest of the panel were kinda "can't top that" in a sort of admiring way. While it was fun to see so much of the TNG cast together and witness how you all interacted I was delighted to see how you and Brent Spiner [imho] were the heros of many of the fans that were there. Not that the others were unpopular by any means. I hope to see you at w00tstock in July!

I try to be kind, always. Even to those who can't figure out how to do it back. Bit by bit, I try to wear them down. Ask me at the end of my life if this works all the time, so far…more hits than misses. Just as success breeds success, I believe that being nice breeds being nice!

"This is how enormous and inclusive our culture is." Right on!

Keep doing what you're doing Wil. Your storytelling just keeps finding new layers under each new layer you reveal.

w00tstock in Phoenix! [Just offering that Phoenix is the 5th largest city in the US]. Not suggesting that w00tstock playing in smaller cities is in any a slight to us, but if you came here you could learn what "it's a dry heat" really means.

Happy New Year Wil! 2010 was truly your year. I have found much, much wisdom from your blog and seeing you in person in AZ and at w00tstock in SD. Being a geek is something to be embraced and cherished [More Band Geeks than Usual is my cover band name]! Seeing your work on Eureka, Big Bang Theory, and The Guild is just icing on the cake! Here's to 2011!

I wish I'd read your blog before I clicked the reddit link. Nearly ruined my dinner.

Happy Birthday Wil! Loved every moment of W00tstock 2.4 and hope to see more in the future. I've told all my friends [which are sadly not geeks] about the experience and cackled with glee about it for the past week! They think I'm a bit mad but in a totally good way. FREE MOLLY!

Wil, It's really great to read your blog and tweets and know that you are letting geeks know it's OK to be who we are. I know you said that you tried not to bogart the TNG panel but let's be real. You were a large part of this year's con. Friday night's rock band, Saturday's geek prom, nearly a third of the panels in the auditorium you ROCKED the comicon! My only regret is not saving enough cash to get your autograph. Perhaps next year... Thanks for a great weekend!

Wil, apparently you brought so much awesome with you that an hour wasn't enough! I don't know how they're going to market the Awesome 80 Minutes though - doesn't have the same ring to it somehow.
