I follow @wilw because I'm a geeky Gen-Xer who grew up with ST:TNG as her avenue to geekdom. I started reading Wil's blog a few years ago and used it as a case study for my grad class on Contemporary Mass Media. I'm pretty sure Wil's blog got me an A. I'm also that much of a geek that friends and I drove up to Montreal to see Wil at a book signing at this little hippy pagan bookseller. It was a crazy time, with F1 cars and Madonna in town to boot. Got my own copy of "Just a Geek" and Wil was kind enough to inscribe it with "Get your geek on!" As I've followed Wil's tweets I've picked up some new strategies for Munchkin and Fluxx and realized that there are other people out there like my husband and I. While we'll never make it into Wil's inner circle it's great to experience bits of his life vicariously through Twitter. He's a great author, funny guy, and definitely worth a follow. If you can't handle his Tweet stream, you're probably not cut out for Twitter. @soxgal

I second the Munchin +variants recommendation. Anything by Steve Jackson is generally good. I've seen Fluxx mentioned and enjoy that one. Set is great too, if you like something that requires a bit of thinking and can get rather ... heated. Guillotine is a great card game, if you don't mind the fact that the object of the game is to collect heads. I've also really enjoyed Mille Bournes and just found it at a local game shop. We'll be giving that to our neighbors for the next game night.

Wil, Great reading in Montreal yesterday. Definitely the highlight of our overnight trip from Boston just to see you. Have fun on the cruise and we'll see you when you come to Boston.

Wil, this is great. I'm working on a masters in communication and taking a communication theory class. I'm working on my own "electronic communication theory" and the links you've posted today and your own comments are a big help!

You must see Serenity. There's a lot that didn't happen that I wanted to, but it still leaves the possibility of a Firefly comeback. Also, did you see that Orson Scott Card was really impressed with Joss Whedon's style? I'd be really excited if we saw a few Ender movies come out as a collaboration between Card and Whedon.
