Neal Stephenson’s appearance at BookPeople on Wednesday would be an excellent opportunity to make him mine. Or at least make him nervous. But I have given up the stalking, so I must content myself with feeling lucky that he is actually interacting with the public.
[Updated, September 2nd, 2012: After C-Man and I met, we discovered that Stephenson’s appearance at BookPeople was probably the first time we were in the same room. We did not meet there, but it was kind of interesting to think about what would have happened if we had.]
