ADAM ROGERS, my editor at "WIRED,"
and SAM POTTS, whom you may know from the Brooklyn Superhero Supply Company and the design of A BOOK
(and whom I know from Mr. Koestenbaum's Photo 1 class)
TEAM UP TO SEND OFF GYGAX with a lovely essay, and an amazing chart.
JOIN THE DISCUSSION OF SAME on boingboing.net and marvel as Potts fends off the typical comments board sniping by OUTGEEKING THEM ALL:
[BEGIN QUOTED TEXT FROM POTTS]
"Vin Diesel is included because he's a self-avowed (-confessed?) D&Der. His connection to Asimov is that "Pitch Black" was based loosely on Asimov's story 'Nightfall.'"
[END POTTS QUOTE]
(C. Alan Joyce of the World Almanac also jumps into the fray.)
FINALLY, and BELATEDLY: thank you, Gary Gygax, and safe journey. We shall all be raiding your tomb forever.
That is all.
