Nerd Dream: Fulfilled? I Got Boing-Boinged

It's weird to see your own name in print when you aren't expecting it, but yeah... There I was, scrolling through the Boing Boing updates on Bloglines, and "whaaa?!" As if writing the Made in Japan column wasn't enough fun, it's nice that it got noticed by what may be considered the #5 most popular blog on the internet (or #1, if you go by number of fans). I guess it's a good thing for me that they're suckers for all things Japanese over there at B.B., and that they seem to be in cahoots with the Make posse, otherwise my writing would just contribute to being another pointless blog, causing static in the blogosphere.

As the wise sage James Mann once said, "In the future, everyone will have their 15 megabytes of fame." I suppose mine has come.

Anyway, I'm done talking about my small accomplishment. Mainly, I wrote this so my mom would be proud of me. You know how parents like to think their kids are the best thing in the world, even if they might actually be more like a modern-day Chris Peterson...
