Wil, I think you should write a recipe book next. I'd totally buy it and I don't even cook.

You have a beautiful family, Wil.

You know, I've always thought that earbuds look kind of silly, but they sure look great on Jason. :)
Damien, Jason and Jessie: From messages I've been reading all over the internet (and not just in places dedicated to your case), I'm far from alone in having cried tears of joy when you walked free on Friday. The world has seemed a brighter place these last four days, not just because you're out of prison, but also because you're truly in the world now. You've already touched and blessed the lives of many, many people whom you don't know and may never meet. Speaking for myself, I know that I would not be quite the same person I am today if I had not stumbled upon an article about you 14 years ago. Damien, you wrote, "This whole experience has taught me much about life, human nature, American justice, survival and transcendence." I would say that you three taught the rest of us a bit about those things as well. Whatever paths you choose for yourselves from here on, the world will be better for it. Follow your hearts, and be gentle with yourselves as you explore this new world.
@Bobby Connelly: Hmm, now where have I heard that kind of talk before? Oh yeah...During DJ&J's trial, only it wasn't directed at Byers back then. I might point out that Byers' DNA wasn't found at the scene either. The DNA pointed to someone else.

Beautiful - Damien in open air. That picture says it all!
But wait, there's more! Vixy & Tony will be on stage with her too! NOW how much would you pay? I'm bummed - I can't go (no sitter). Seriously though, if you have no idea who Marian Call is, check it out - she's awesome.

That was the best episode of Leverage I've seen yet - though, granted, it's normally something I only half-watch while the rest of the family watches. The "High Noon" moment was hysterical and I totally wasn't expecting the ending. Hope your van wasn't too "whiffy"!

Are there any plans to port this to the G1/Android platform? I've used TripIt to plan 4 trips now, including one major family vacation, and I don't know how I ever managed without it. I can get to it via the browser on my G1, but having a cellphone app like this would be even better.

More announcement means more things to announce, which means more cool things are happening - and hey, you've earned it!

That sucks. I haven't written anything on ficlets yet, but I was seriously considering it, having recently discovered that I enjoy reading and writing drabbles (fanfics of exactly 100 words). Initially, drabbles appealed to me because I don't have much time to read/write longer fanfics, but I found that the severe length restriction actually improved my writing in a number of ways. Working with more general stuff on ficlets (which I heard about from you) seemed like a good idea. I hope somebody can get something going quickly (perhaps by customizing existing software like eFiction?). This would be a good project for one of the way-too-many laid-off techies out there.

Hey Wil - totally off-topic, but I just found out about this: http://www.books4barack.com Seems like something you might be interested in.

Thanks for the smiles and shared memories, Wil. I owe more to that particular cult phenomenon than I'm entirely prepared to admit - but for starters, there are 3 children (well, two children and a young woman who turns 21 next week) who wouldn't even exist if it weren't for that movie. As for the remake...*sigh*...it was bound to happen eventually. If they go through with it, let's hope it meets with the fate it deserves.

Congrats! See - you can still be the thing you were before. :) ...and now that song is stuck in my head. At least it's an improvement over the one that was stuck there before I read this: Tom Smith's delightfully obnoxious "Theme from Space Squid". What is it with giant tentacled things in my head today?

I saw Leif Garret in concert in 1979. *hangs head in shame* "I got better."

Thanks for posting this, Wil. Your blog covers a lot of topics that I enjoy, but it's most fascinating to me when you write about writing. I'm just getting back into writing after an embarrassingly long hiatus (I majored in screenwriting before I dropped out - a result of being a moron when I was younger), and it's just incredibly helpful when you post stuff like this. BTW, if you ever have the urge to write about, oh, say, "shutting off the critic in your brain long enough to actually get an idea written out" - you know, without constantly stopping to edit and re-edit before you go on to the next paragraph - PLEASE do. :)

Wow - I'll definitely have to check that out when I'm not at work. Felicia Day rocks - in an it's-totally-unfair-that-anybody-could-be-that-beautiful-AND-that-talented sort of way.
