Whedon the headlines

Bad seat, bad camera, bad result

One of the things I get to do as an occasional contributor to Gizmodo is write up notable comments from geek celebrities when they make public appearances in Australia. I did that for Stephen Fry a couple of weeks ago, and yesterday I performed the same task for Joss Whedon, who is nipping through Australia on a brief speaking tour.

I’m a properly tragic Stephen Fry fan boy, while my acquaintance with Whedon is much more casual. But while the two articles use a similar format, the Whedon piece is much longer. I’m not sure whether that’s because my detachment made it easier to write, or whether he’s just a more natural Gizmodo subject. Guess I’ll go with the latter.
