Dork power set to maximum

backpack

Much in the same way that I was certain that I was the only person blogging the Comic-Con, Tour de France, and AAAI artificial intelligence conference, I'm pretty sure I'm the only person in the entire universe with a backpack (any object for that matter) signed by:

  • Don Knuth (thanks ota)
  • Douglas Hofstadter
  • Neil Gaiman
  • Dave Zabriskie

Not so coincidentally:

  • Neil Gaiman <-> Comic-Con/Comics
  • Dave Zabriskie <-> Tour de France/Cycling
  • Don Knuth/Douglas Hofstadter <-> AI/Computer Science

Which is to say that I now have tangible/wearable proof of the absurd nicheness of this blog. Allow me to congratulate myself. Now how is it that Bloglines lists other subscribers to this feed? If you've read this far, you're all as dorky as me.

And of course you've got the star trek reference in the title of the entry too.

It's interesting that the computer scientists have the neatest signatures, while Neil Gaiman and Dave Zabriskie have the messiest. Perhaps that is indicative of how often they are asked to autograph things.

Neil Gaiman, incidentally looks a lot like Ned Gull.
