Last night, I ducked out from home after putting John to bed to see Randall Munroe, author of the XKCD webcomic speak at his alma mater, CNU, where I work.
Randall told some great stories, about how the comic started and some pranks he played while on campus. The great thing about these stories is that I remember the events, but on the “administrator” side versus the “student” side. He also explained the XKCD April Fools joke, which was impressive in both planning and technical scope.
If you don’t read XKCD, and you like science and most things nerdy, you should start reading today.
