Your New Secretary of Geek Affairs

And the winner is:

WIL WHEATON!

Despite a nail-biting race in which Joss Whedon put up one hell of a fight, there can be only one.

xxx

The battle began with Wil in a commanding lead, but then the Whedonites arrived in full force after word of this contest was posted on Whedonesque.  The fates flip-flopped.  Mr. Mo Mentum changed his address.  Joss pulled way ahead.  Over the next few days, Wil steadily gained on Joss, but the gap was too huge to overcome...it looked like all was lost for Wil.  But then, out of the blue, Fark and Scalzi and GeekDad threw their considerable political weight behind Wil, and the rest, as they say, is history.  Truly, there can be only one.  For the full story, complete with statistics and such, listen to Paul and Storm's latest podcast here

Can I just say that I love that icon?

Not sure I've said it before, but, um...yeah. Love it.

And I've never resembled it. Nope. Never. ; )

I think some would argue that, at times, there are three of me and they all look like that, but that is simply untrue.

A complete fallacy. Yep.

Sah-weet! Exactly the Geek who should have one, IMHO. (Not that it's ever REALLY humble...)

Indeed. He should have one of everything.

Though I was quoting Highlander. ; )

Congratulations to Wil! :D

He's more suited to the post, more involved in geek affairs, really. And Joss wouldn't have had the time to fulfil all the imaginary duties of such a post anyway.

You should hear what Paul and Storm have to say about this.

They (and Wil) are planning a proper way to induct Wil to his post. Something involving a sacrifice and Windows 3.0. Oh, yeah...they went there.
