JK Icon 100pixKevin cartoonThis past week has been an interesting one for jkOnTheRun, at least while Vista issues weren’t dominating my time.  It’s been interesting because we found out that the founder of Planet Ark, a rock star, and now a UK soap opera star are big fans of jkOnTheRun.  I was already aware that a famous cartoonist is a frequent reader, in fact I’m going to sit down with him tomorrow to geek out.  It seems that geekhood crosses all boundaries.    So here’s the deal, if you’re famous submit a comment here and let us know what makes you famous (even if it’s just in your own mind).  You don’t have to give a lot of detail if you don’t want, but at least tell us why you’re famous and where you are located.  It’s always cool to see where our readership is coming from.  Oh, you folks I alluded to above should chime in too.

  1. location- Pueblo, Colorado

    Reason for the fame? Cuz I was 1st to comment here ;)

  2. Local fame, including local news and a brief spot on Insomniac as a juggler and fire eater/breather. Does that count? ;)

    You guys are famous. I should’ve asked for your autograph at CES!

  3. I wrote some books on Pocket PC, does that count? (Writes Frank, with Famous playing in his head http://www.biddiesmusic.com/music/)

  4. Some people call me infamous, which, according to the Three Amigos, is even better than famous!

  5. Frank, I read those books on the Pocket PC, what does that say about me? Of course, it’s hard to beat fire breathing. :)

  6. Keith beat me to it. Will you take the infamous too or are you worried that people would do dangerous things to get on the site? No robbing liquor stores to get your tablet pc fix.

  7. I’m not as famous as I’d like to be, but I did animate that famous cartoonist’s characters for Dreamworks last year…say hi to T for me – he’s great!! (and a huge Tablet fan – hopefully he got that crack fixed!)

  8. Aside from having had blog posts read on two major podcasts (hint: they have “otr” in their acronyms), I have some name recognition in the pen and paper gaming community. Wrote a book for Palladium named “Splynn Dimension Market”, plus some other things (including a reprint I didn’t even know about until a guy complimented me). Also helped test Exalted v1 & v2 for White Wolf and made a lasting contribution to the game, though the latter part is not widely known. Never made many waves in the community, but once, on a msg board, I was asked if I was *the* Sumocat.

    BTW, ThoughtFix brings up a good point. Room full of Tablet PC users. No one thinks to collect everyone’s signatures (at least not that I know of). I’m going to crash the party next year just to do that (and maybe pick up some fame points in the process).

  9. I did some writing for the miniatures game industry back in the ’90s (Global Games and RAFM, if those companies mean anything to you) and currently do volunteer work in the Bungie Studios fan community. Dunno if that counts, but I’ll throw my hat in on the off chance it does.

    Apparently, the closest Bungie gets to having Tablet PCs is one (1) Wacom Cintiq monitor. Everybody else uses drawing tablets instead.

  10. Hi There. I’m Andrew Davis. Yes, that Andrew Davis. Not sure if you’d really call me famous. I just produce movies; Independence Day, to name one. What can I say? I love the site. But then I have a thing for new gadgets.
