Just don’t ask him what kind of computer he uses

You know him best as PC in the Apple commercials, where he consistently steals the show and seems more likeable than his Macintosh counterpart. John Hodgman is more than an actor in commercials, however, he’s also a humorist who performs (here he is explaining the series of tubes that is teh intruwub on The Daily Show) as well as writes. Now his book, The Areas of My Expertise, is coming out in paperback and he’ll be appearing at the Warehouse Next Door tonight to promote it. While the Olssens webpage claims the event is sold out, admission was supposed to be free with purchase of the paperback so you may still be able to go. If you’re of a mind, give them a call at (202) 785-1133. If you manage to weasel yourself in you’ll also get to enjoy Jonathan Coulton, creator of the brilliant Re:Your Brains and other fun music.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
