New York Times maps the geek universe around Gary Gygax

Here's some chicken soup for the geek in you: the New York Times has mapped out a matrix of all of the things that may have directly benefited for the geekery that was Dungeons and Dragons. It may be a stretch to attribute the problem-solving logic that went to creating the Internet to dice-raping a gang of underground gold-hoarding lizards, but the author makes a compelling argument that these are pivotal to the fabric of all geekdom. You must believe that certain serious fat men who would go on to grow great beards and run IT departments did certainly play the games of Gary Gygax. This is what makes the diagram so spot-on funny: it maps the fabric of the pasty sunlight-and-vagina-starved Neuromancer-wannabes right down to the last convention center event and Mountain Dew can.

So RIP, GG & THX. I'm proudly guilty of at least 91% of all of the above and wouldn't have it any other way. Protip: For added fun, substitute his name with Al Gore before sending to friends.
