Original reporting notes[edit]

I interviewed Randall Munroe at the 2008 Vericon. Some questions reflect follow-up email clarifications. I have a complete transcript that can be emailed on request. JoshuaZ - (talk) 02:43, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

Final sentence[edit]

The final sentence, "I chose it because I think it's a good example of Obama's decision-making and what sets him apart from so many politicians, and because it provided a convenient background to segue into talk about his anti-corruption efforts and to leadership in general", lacks a full stop. Either one should be added, or, if absent in the original source, a [sic] should be appended to the end. 75.85.233.119 11:15, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Link to Ender's Game article[edit]

In the Specific comics section, the first question, there is a link to the Wikipedia article for Ender's Game that is incorrect. The link uses the wrong apostrophe and lowercase letter g. It currently shows this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ender’s_game but should be http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ender's_Game

"Politics and Religion"[edit]

The sentence, " You criticized Young Earth creationism and in the same strip report make a bug report to God," could use a link to the strip in question. Every other reference to a specific comic has such a link. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.138.32.219 (talk) 19:25, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

  • Done. But we're not going to link to the more recent strip that references something he said here (regarding making a WP article that cannot be neutral). Chris Mann (Say hi!|Stalk me!) 00:06, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
