Cory Doctorow cosplayers at the XKCD picnic

Rich sez, "The webcomic XKCD had a meetup in Cambridge today. A few hundred nerdy folk showed up, and a few dressed as the stick figure characters, but even better were the people dressed up like Cory Doctorow!

For more pics of the event, see Flickr photos tagged with 'xkcddreams'."

(A word of explanation: XKCD is a marvellous, unapologetically nerdy comic, and Randall Munroe, the creator, once did me the immense honor of making me the punchline of a strip, wearing goggles and a cape. This has become something of a running joke now, much to my delight)


(Thanks, Rich!)
