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.

I read this Wired article, which gets into some of the more unconventional and humorous aspects of the Google filing, including the fact that the value of the offering is set at $2,718,281,828, i.e. $e*109. What dorks :).

You can read the filing yourself if you like.
