I’ve finally decided that I really don’t hate Wil Wheaton. Perhaps this is because two of the sciency-fictiony-geeky blogs I read, Bad Astronomy and Whatever, continuously talk about what a fully certified geek he really is.
I was put over the top by this text conversation quoted by Scalzi on his blog.
So consider this my public apology for years of loathing. I’ve decided that a guy has to make a buck, and I probably would’ve taken a crap role to hang out on the Star Trek stage too. Besides, I’m sure there are some things I did as a 17 year old that I would rather forget.
