Just don’t ask him what kind of computer he uses

You know him best as PC in the Apple commercials, where he consistently steals the show and seems more likeable than his Macintosh counterpart. John Hodgman is more than an actor in commercials, however, he’s also a humorist who performs (here he is explaining the series of tubes that is teh intruwub on The Daily Show) as well as writes. Now his book, The Areas of My Expertise, is coming out in paperback and he’ll be appearing at the Warehouse Next Door tonight to promote it. While the Olssens webpage claims the event is sold out, admission was supposed to be free with purchase of the paperback so you may still be able to go. If you’re of a mind, give them a call at (202) 785-1133. If you manage to weasel yourself in you’ll also get to enjoy Jonathan Coulton, creator of the brilliant Re:Your Brains and other fun music.

    This was a great event last night. The place was packed and Hodgman and Coulton were very funny.

    Last week I interviewed Hodgman for my podcast, so if you want some insight as to the method of his madness, check it out at http://www.wingsforwheels.net/wordpress/?p=178
