Yeah, that one was really good. I was surprised at first at how knowledgeable this NYT writer was (knowing stuff like that the magic system in D&D was inspired by a Jack Vance novel) - then I saw he was really from wired.

He's right, anyway. While Gygax's game was a saviour for this particular geek, it also did wonders to bring typical geek phenomena into the mainstream.
