I’ve decided that I’m going to spontaneously go to PAX Prime next weekend.


PAX Prime (for those who don’t know) is a HUGE gaming convention here in Seattle.

I’m not thinking of going because I’m a gamer. I’m not. I do play the classics: Mario, Ms. Pac-Man, Galaga, etc. But I’m not into online gaming. Not because I don’t think it’s cool, I just don’t have the time to spend on it.

I’m thinking about going to PAX because of one man – Wil Wheaton.

Last time Wil was here for a convention it was for the Emerald City Comic Con… which I missed. I attempted to entice him to come to my house for a personal meet-and-greet… and it failed. Probably because he didn’t see my tweet amid the MILLIONS of tweets he was surely receiving from fans.

I’m not a fan of his acting per se… but I am a fan of his first-adopter-ing, forward-thinking, techno-geekery. So there’s that.

I realized that when he unwillingly ignored my plea for his attention during the darkest hour of my battle with the Big C it left but one recourse – I must now stalk him.

Okay, not really. But I had you there for a moment, huh?

Also, Jonathan Coulton is going to be signing/performing as well as Paul and Storm. Don’t know who these people are? I could be all superior and say something like, “then get off my lawn!” But I believe in sharing the goodness. So here are links to their respective sites.

So, I’m still undecided as to whether or not to go. It would make for a great blog post though.

Or maybe not.

**Edited on 8/24/2011 to add – Sadly, I am NOT going to PAX because the damn thing is totally sold out. Hope all the 70,000 attendees have an awesome time… bastards….
