I told my boss that you are a fan and she wants to send you some rabbit ears or whatever you need so that you can watch Antenna TV :) Also, if you are interested in some swag, feel free to email us at [email protected]

We're running Stand By Me all week on Antenna TV (which would be KTLA's 5.2 channel). It is actually on TV right now and I am watching it at work. I posted a link to your blog from our facebook page http://www.facebook.com/AntennaTV. I'm a big fan of your blog:)

Hey Wil, I'm sorry that you got sick. It sounds pretty horrible. I went to Penguicon last night to see you read. I got there at 9:30p and hung around for about 20 minutes until someone said that you weren't doing a reading and weren't coming to the convention (they still had your name on the door of the conference room, as a speaker). I asked them for a refund for me and my sister, who only went to the convention to see you speak, and they wouldn't give us a refund. I totally understand why you had to cancel, but I think it was incredibly rude of the people at Penguicon. I checked their website right before I left to go there and they still had you on their event calendar as a speaker. I'm not a fan of conventions, and would not have spent $20 per person to hang out there. I felt a little gypped. I know you probably can't do anything about it anyway, but I just wanted you to know that is how Penguicon rolls, I guess. Hope you feel better, Kari

Hi Wil, You took down your Eventful widget for Penguicon. I was just wondering if you were still coming to Detroit this weekend??

Thanks for the ACLU links. That actually helped me out a lot. You are definitely doing your part in making our nation better (that sounded cheesy, but it's true). I'm one of those "notoriously unreliable" "younger voters" that needed a kick in the ass to get to the polls. But with a little prodding from you and Facebook, I got my lazy ass out there and voted. Happy Election Day, Wil!

I was doing my tri-daily run through my fav websites and all of a sudden I could do nothing but bust up laughing when I clicked on WWdN and that picture popped up. Absolutely classic:)

I hope your part 2 isn't a Bogus Journey:) I really enjoyed reading this. I had a few laughing out loud moments. Can't wait for the sequel.

I guess I'm a "true fan". I never really thought about it before, but I did drive 12 hours to go to one of your readings. I spend about $50 a month on completely unnecessary crap, so I'm sure if you sold some cool shirts/mugs/mouse pads I'd be right there in line to buy. The key to suckering us into the $100 per year range, is to release new things throughout the year and not all at once. We're more likely to buy lots of stuff and stay interested that way. Just something to keep in mind while you're making plans.

I was totally not expecting that awesome ending. You are such a good suspense writer:) I jumped up and told my nearest co-worker, who replied, "Kari, you're funny" (translate: you are a huge nerd, but I don't think nerds are cool so I'm just gonna say you're funny). I love Numb3rs!! I have a poster up from the show in my cubicle (of course, I work at CBS so that really doesn't count). I haven't watched the show in a while, so this will give me a reason to start watching it again. I <3 David Krumholtz. Geeks rule!! Now I'm going to call my sister so she can freak out, too. Congrats!!

I'm so very excited that you auditioned for The Sarah Connor Chronicles. It is THE show I am looking forward to seeing this year (I'm bummed that it's mid-season, though). Summer Glau from Firefly and Thomas Dekker from Heroes. You cannot go wrong there. I just finished listening to your PAX speech and I enjoyed it quite a bit (and I'm not even a gamer). I wanted to see what people were saying about it on the internet and holy crap! you're being cited as the most awesome gamer ever (I mean, I always knew you were awesome, but look at all these new people who are totally agreeing). I am so excited for you and I hope the whole PAX experience opens up a lot of opportunities for you. You have to let us know as soon as you find out about the audition. I'm on the edge of my seat (and I called my sister, right away, to make sure she was on the edge of her seat, too:)

Okay, this is my second comment to this post (the first one made me late for work--thanks a lot Wil:). I love that people came out of the woodwork to support you. Twenty-somethings love you more than any of those thirty-somethings ever will. We never hated you. You just need to be yourself and talk about what you're passionate about. I read your blog and I don't have all that much in common with you (not a parent, not a gamer, not a poker player, but I do watch Heroes). I still get what you say and if I don't, I still read it and its interesting because your interested in it (I was paraphrasing something that you paraphrased once). This got really long. My point is (yes I have one), please stick with your original speech, because it will let your you-ness shine through.

Hey Wil, I'm 25 and read your blog daily and bought all your books and drove 12 hours to see you speak. Now that I sound like a complete nutjob, my point is, you are completely relevant to my generation and I think you should stick with your original speech. Good luck and chill:)

This comment has nothing to do with this blog, but were you aware that the ad on your page is for Bill O'Reilly's "Culture Warrior". So...I'm very, very frightened. Just thought you would like to be scared along with the rest of us.
