We Meta-Love XKCD

Like so many similarly-inclined folk, I found this XKCD strip pretty touching, in a nostalgic sort of way. It's a celebration of geek culture as something more than mere geekery, praise of giddy ambition and optimistic camaraderie. (I hesitate to mention that it's also a bit of a downer as my own attempt at a webcomic was far too introverted and scattershot to resonate with so many people*. XKCD has a way of constantly reminding me why it's king.)

Well, a group of happy geeks has gone ahead and made homage to the strip (which itself is an homage to this delightful Discovery Channel clip) by acting it out verbatim, and they've done a remarkable job:

* It's interesting that it's been more than three months since my last Forest For the Trees update, yet a goodly number of you folk continue to visit it daily. In response, I'll be continuing that little adventure in webcomicry this fall, hopefully for good.)
