Bad news, good news

The bad news is that the NYC xkcd book party is happening on the same day as the opening for my wife’s super-cool pirate project at the South Street Seaport. The good news, however, is that (a) the number of tickets to the book party is strictly limited; that (b) it probably won’t start until well after 6pm, when the pirate opening will have ended; and (c) the pirate opening is free, which, if Chris Anderson is to be believed, gives it an unbeatable advantage.

So, if you’re going to the xkcd book party, or if you’re not, do make sure to rock up at Cannon’s Walk at 4pm on Saturday. I’ll be there, and Michelle will be too, and I think various other members of the Reuters commentary team might turn up as well. Hope to see you there!

Wow.. I had totally missed the XKCD event open auction. Sorry Felix, but your posting about this just created some more competition for those tickets (now… how to game out the right bid. Argh! ;-) )

(Not to put down your wife’s event – it looks awesome too, going to see if I can drag some friends out of the woodwork for it as well)


What a coincidence!

The “epic international” Talk Like A Pirate Day takes place on Sept. 19th. I wonder if anyone will talk like a pirate at the super-cool pirate project at the South Street Seaport?
