I'm so happy! and yet, beginning to feel nostalgic for the years in exile. People are weird. Congrats on the return home! It looks spiffy!

Wil - OH YES! I can't wait. I've been reading you since at least 2002, when I realized I had to check out this 'blog' stuff I'd been hearing about and rediscoverd YOU! Yay! You've been influential, sir, and improved my life, and I thank you.

Oh, Wil - that takes me way back (50 years) to the cool dark interior of the house in summer, my mom coming home from a trip to the grocery store so she can keep 5 kids fed, popsicles, trips to the pool, firefly watching off the front porch (Midwest summers), summer reading club and walks to the library to get re-supplied with science fiction . . . thank you for this post. I love your writing.

Wil - thanks for the clarification of your tweet. I was one of those who was disappointed by what I perceived as name-calling and intolerance of others by you. I think your clarification upholds your values. However, we must always be vigilant against feelings of intolerance, since we can fall victim to these feelings, and seek to confront and overcome hate when it's expressed by ourselves and others. A life-time of effort and daily habit, and I salute you for raising the bar for online communication!

Oh, this is fantastic! It's exactly how I feel about all the good series I've found (with living authors). Waiting for the next book, then trying to decide whether to read it slow or fast. I remember I finally gave up waiting for the next Harry Potter to make it to paper back, and bought the hard copy. Same thing with the latest Vorkosigan book. Thanks, Wil!

Wil - thanks for reposting this cartoon; thanks for keeping up with the current political situation; and, thank you for reaching out with a reasoned argument to people who read your blog. As an educator, I'd like to add that one of the "other important institutions" (thank you, Oar is Peace) that's been systematically attacked AND over-burdened is the higher educational system in CA. Teachers matter - the good ones teach people how to reason and think and avoid emotional screaming matches. Local school boards are important. Keep writing, Wil. Your voice is needed.

Wil, This show looks like so much fun to watch, as did the other Geek & Sundry shows. I watched the trailer thinking: finally, tv for someone like me. I wish so much I could find other people to play games with. Will there be a social networking component to your show, like BoingBoing did last year, where they held a Meet-Up and invited their blog followers to get together in different cities? I could see that happening with this show. I've loved how you've emphasized the social benefits of gaming over the years. It's changed my attitude towards games completely around. Thanks!!!

That photo is amazing! The ghostly image of a game-playing cat, reflected in a mysterious metal object! Cats do the darndest things.

Wil - these long posts from the past bring back memories: memories of why I started reading your blog, and why I continued to read it. Google+ just isn't the same. Please write more here.

Wil - You write so well - love the comments and descriptions you make about acting. I can picture the hallway, and the chair next to where you left your phone on the floor (such a great detail). Thanks for sharing!

When I was doing my research for my dissertation, I made the same mistake: talking about what I was discovering, instead of writing it down. Bad idea, since now I have to write it up and it's harder to remember. Smaller outlets act more like drains - ideas slip away, since the essential point has already been made. However, if there were a way to collect the G+ and Twitter posts, they could serve as a type of journal, or idea repository. Just thinkin' out loud here.

Wil, I love these posts, where you revisit the past and then provide thoughtful updates! I'm now the same age as my father was when he retired, and I think back to how he acted, and how I act, and marvel at the passage of time. I read your blog all the time, and I know you feel it's outlived its usefulness, but longer posts allow the writer more time to develop ideas. G+ is ok, but not as satisfying to read - like snack food for lunch.

Wil, What a jolt! I've been reading your blog since (around) 2003, when it was wilwheaton.net. I still have the original blinking button on my old, orphaned website. I've enjoyed following your progress to improve as an artist - expand your reach, the type of projects you try - and have been grateful that you've shared. You probably won't be able to find time to read these comments, but I thought I'd post anyway. Thanks for the memories.

Wil - I called up Mapquest and followed along as I read this story. I loved the post - esp. the attention to color detail in describing the early evening sky and the glow on the buildings. I can picture the entire scene, and feel the air. Absolutely wonderful!

Wil - I LOVE reading your stories. The tweets: not so much, though I get pointed to interesting sites and photos. I wish you wrote more, and tweeted less. just a selfish fan, I suppose. nice memoryscape.

time is awesome. the technology helps, but it's not enough. The passing of time allows us to catch up and using the technology makes it easier.

"Tubefilter says Day had an "entrance typically reserved for A-list movie stars" at her panel, where she announced Wil Wheaton was joining the cast." from Io9.com "Who Won Comic Con's Buzz Wars? Our 10 Picks" so, is this true?
