    Was that – that was MC Frontalot. I’m in geektopia.

    I have no idea who 3/4 of those people are, but still exceedingly cool.

    Sorry to be a downer, but there really isn’t a facepalm big enough to adequately convey my opinion.
    I like XKCD but this is embarrassing.

    This reminds me of why I love the internet. Thank you BB, and TNH, this made my day.

    I recognize some of the people but who is in bed with the puppets? I can’t figure that one out.

    Can any nice person fill those of us whose geek-credentials show some marks of forgery in on who’s who?

    I recognize Neil Gaiman, Cory, and I assume Lawrence Lessig, but don’t know any of the others.

    Who I’ve got so far:

    Cory Doctorow with the goggles and cloak, “I love the blogosphere”.

    Phil “Bad Astronomer” Plait is the guy with the picture of Saturn with the post-it, “I love the whole world”.

    Bruce Schneier is the bearded guy, “I love cryptography”.

    Neil Gaiman, quiet bookcase guy, “I love the mystery”.

    The Nielsen Haydens are the couple with the flag, “We love collections”.

    I think Wil Wheaton is the guy in the park, “The future’s pretty cool”.

    Muppetophile looks familiar, but I can’t place him, either.

      Elections, actually.

      The guy with the Muppets is credited as Team Genius, but I think he’s Todd Michael Rogers.

    Neil and Maddy Gaiman on the trampoline. I think he says “I love her sister” rather than “I love your sister”.

    Loved seeing Miss Cellania in there.

    Brilliant! Cross this off my list of “things too wonderful to not-exist (that I must therefore at some point create)”

    Woo! Hank Green! I love that guy. This was an awesome video.

    Octavio Coleman, Esq. steals people’s teeth for his experiments. He’s a very bad man.

    @Pantograph #8
    Yes it is (embarrassing, weird, childish), but it is done in a way which I find irresistibly charming.
    Done in the SPIRIT of XKCD and with the kind of silly joy we should all try embrace.

    @Cory
    EPIC!
