 On Leonard Nimoy…

You probably have heard that today Leonard Nimoy has passed at age 83.

I never had the honor of working with Mr. Nimoy. Still it feels like I have lost a family member.

When I was little Star Trek was very dear to me. The 3 day marathon being one of the highlights of my Summer. As I grew up, the ideas of optimism and discovery led me to be active in my local science center. It was through the lens of Star Trek that I stubbornly viewed the world. Even though I knew the reality of daily life was far different – it gave me hope that one day we could have had people of all shapes, sizes, and colors on a starship exploring the unknown.

Mr. Nimoy’s work not only dared us to dream and to hold onto that Star Trek optimism, but he also challenged us to think about people who may have a very different way of thinking and acting than we do.

And that was cool. Spock was as different as you could be from the other members of Starfleet, but he also was one of the coolest.

I think that many of us who did not fit in appreciated that message.

It is today that we as fans are saddened, but at the same time we must know that Mr. Nimoy’s work touched so many. I have never been happier to be a geek. I think that’s the first time I have referred to myself as a “geek”. I’ve often dismissed the term as a Marketing construct that has been imposed on fans to suit headlines. Today I’ll own it. As I look around and see all of my fellow fans equally saddened I know 2 things:

1. You understand me.

2. You are My People.

Mr. Nimoy had a large role in bringing so many people together. So let’s try not to be sad. Let’s try to live life as he would have wanted. Let’s hold on to that optimism and show his work to the next generation. The impact of Mr. Nimoy’s work will never die. His legacy will Live Long and Prosper.

 Meet me at Katsucon, possibly Farpoint in MD this weekend!

Heyyyy guys.

I’m out touring in support of Intervention and (Re)Generation Who. I will be briefly at Farpoint on Friday dropping off supplies and then I will be at Katsucon on Saturday and Sunday.

Please be sure to look for the (Re)Generation Who table at each of these cons and say hello to our staff! They will usually know where I am. Your odds of meeting me are higher at Katsucon since I will be there for 2 days.

If you have Doctor Who cosplay on, we will be looking for you to photograph you and feature you on our site and facebook page.

 Press: Oni and Harknell talk Doctor Who Conventions on Who’s Talking

I have been extremely busy. Not only am I managing 2 conventions at once and working on a book, but I am also starting a new job this week – and we had a snow day, just to make it all that much more interesting.

We had the opportunity to go on Who’s Talking and talk about Doctor Who conventions, and of course share some secret info about what we have planned and not yet announced regarding (Re)Generation Who. you’ll have to listen to hear us spill the beans.

meet-me-at-magfest-in-md-this-weekend
 Meet me at Magfest in MD this weekend!

What is my absolute favorite convention besides Intervention and (Re)Generation Who? Magfest.

Magfest is a unique gaming convention that has a ridiculously huge amount of arcade cabinets and vintage games set up along with a 4 day music festival. It’s basically a gigantic party that anyone who likes cool shit will love.

I will be there with fellow (Re)Generators James Harknell (Co-Showrunner) and Kara Dennison (Community Manager) looking for the best Doctor Who cosplayers. Those that we photograph will be featured on the (Re)Generation Who Facebook page. We’ll also be giving out stickers and random cool shit, so hope to see you there! You’ll be able to recognize us as I will be the only red dalek with a bald man.

BIG NEWS! The (Re)Generation Who blog (you know, the Doctor Who convention that I am the Showrunner on) is partnering with many official folks to bring you fan content and interviews that no one else will have! Bookmark and subscribe over there because here is just the first installment.

The first is an exclusive interview with Doctor Who Experience writer Joseph Lidster:

‘I want every visitor to feel how every companion feels on the day the Doctor comes crashing into their lives.’

[He] has brought us closer to the worlds of some of our favourite TV shows as the writer of John Watson’s and Martha Jones’s blogs. Now he’s helped to re-imagine Cardiff’s Doctor Who Experience, taking it from an interactive attraction to a fully immersive adventure.

Read our interview with him on the (Re)Gen blog and get a look at what’s inside the Experience!
