- Tim Bedore
- Trace Beaulieu
- Jason Finn
- Prof. Jim Kakalios I need to buy his book. Also, if there had been a Physics of Superheroes class at St Olaf, I would have taken it instead of that silly biology class. This was honestly one of my favorite parts of the evening!
- Molly Lewis She sings silly songs on the ukulele. In fact, she debuted one about Stephen Fry, which was an absolute hoot. Sadly, it’s not on her YouTube channel yet.
- Len Peralta He drew a special available-that-night-only w00tstock poster Live! On stage! I ordered one, natch.
- Bill Corbett and Kevin Murphy from Rifftrax
- John Scalzi There is an awesome fanfic contest going on at his blog, based on the most amazing picture ever.
- Adam Savage from Mythbusters
- Wil Wheaton of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” fame; he also writes really entertaining books
- Paul and Storm who sometimes open for Jonathan Coulton
Special (sort of) Surprise Appearance by:
- Neil Gaiman (I was pretty sure he was going to show up, though, since I knew he was backstage thanks to the magic of Twitter)
I should also mention that my friend Marie made a cake for w00tstock, which was super cool, both in terms of the cake she made and that she MADE. A. CAKE. FOR. W00TSTOCK. She blogged about is here, with lots of pictures.
Oh! There was also a video proposal–she said yes. ❤
Yeah. It was geeeeeeeeky.
It also ran way, way long–the Minneapolis show was almost five hours long instead of the advertised three. Five hours of geeky, nerdy goodness. Bliss! Well, except for the fact that I spent Tuesday in a fog of tiredness. That part wasn't so blissful. And it was *so* late by the time it finally ended that I just couldn't justify waiting around for everyone to come out and then waiting even more for autographs. Which was disappointing, but such is life.
This is Paul and Storm singing a song about boxing nuns as Ceiling Cat looks on. That really sums the evening up well.
(ETA things I forgot.)
