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!
