It would be too, um, forward to say this on the Better Angels blog, so I'll do it here, among friends...

Queue giggling girls simultaneously bluetooth cell phoning and texting:

"Oh my gawd, Mark Crislip linked to my blog!"

That's how I feel at the moment...I was looking at the blog's traffic statistics, and noticed a link referral from the Science-Based Medicine blog. "Odd," I thought, "Why the heck would they have a link to me?"

So I checked out the post linked there, a post I not only recalled but had found interesting enough that I posted about it on Better Angels, and searching on my blog URL, I discovered that Mark Crislip, sarcastic host of the excellent QuackCast podcast, had actually linked to me:



For me, nerdy skeptic to the core, this is like some football guy mentioning your name in a Pepsi commercial. Yowza!

While I'm at it, here are recent posts on the Better Angels blog:


I really should subscribe to QuackCast. I listen to "The Skeptics Guide to the Universe" every week, and I do consider it an important part of my sanity.

I know the feeling you have though, when Leo Leporte(of Tech TV fame, now and independent broadcaster over the Internet) responded to me directly on a twitter post, I had that "I'm the coolest guy ever" feeling.

Man, anything related to TechTV makes me nostalgic. Why did G4 have to ruin it beyond all recognition? =(

Well, you win that one! Approximately 50 gazillion more people know who Laporte is than Mr. Crislip (as Crislip says, "The world needs more Crislip.").

It's not really that special though. He has his own private "twitter" at http://army.twit.tv. It wasn't hard to get his attention when there was only a few hundred people on it, and even now it's not impossible. But it felt great none the less.
