Randall "XKCD" Munroe and me on our work habits -- video

Last August, I travelled to Springfield, Mass for 3PiCon, a science fiction convention where I was co-guest of honor with Randall "XKCD" Munroe. We did some fun programming items together, but the best was the last day's event, a panel called "My Day at Work." In honor of Randall's comics, I attended in red cape and goggles, natch, and we had a rollicking time. Karl Wagner caught it on video (the audio's a little poor, but you can hear it), and it's been a hoot to re-live it this morning. 3Pi-Con - My Day At Work - Cory Doctorow & Randall Munroe (Thanks, Karl!)


  1. Yes, to echo #1 – PLEASE turn off the auto playing! I’m interested in it, and yet I haven’t watched it because every time I load boingboing, it starts making annoyingly loud laughter and audience noises and then I spend a while scrolling around trying to find it, and then I hit pause, and then I go back to trying to read the other things I want to read. Now I just associate it with being bothered, so I don’t feel like watching it.

  2. can anyone transcribe this? pretty pretty please?
    no offense to the authors of this recording, but the noise levels… the noise…
