A Successful Infiltration of the Great Allentown Comic Con’s 5th Anniversary Show

Nichelle Nichols at the Con

The Great Allentown Comic Con’s 5th Anniversary Show was this past weekend and I was there. I had three things in mind, buy some things to read either comic book or just book, buy some art and hear Nichelle Nichols speak. And I was successful on all three fronts.

So, why bury the lead, the last thing I did during my infiltration was go to a panel where Nichelle Nichols did a short 40 minute Q & A, it was fantastic! She is a fascinating woman. She spoke of the vision of the future that Gene Roddenberry had and of her fellow actors, directors and the new and old Trek.

Breaking the Fourth Wall: Recapping My Year-Long Content Experiment

From the desk of Agent Palmer

Starting last November 1, as the founder and primary writer of this blog, I embarked on a journey to create content – not just LOTS of content, but consistent content as well. Two posts per week for one year was my goal. And 12 months later, I have successfully completed my year of content.

In that year, I eclipsed my self-imposed two posts per week by averaging about two and a quarter posts per week. The stats never lie and they say that after one whole year, I have published not the minimum 104 posts, but 117, with the help of five guest posts (one from Field Agent Wacker and four from Agent Parker).

A look at A modest tribute and deconstruction of one episode of The West Wing

SeventeenPeople dot com is A modest tribute and deconstruction of one episode of West Wing

One of my favorite shows is “The West Wing,” and as much as I may be a super-fan, designer John White has taken it one step further.

With, White has created a wonderful “live infographic” about one of the best and most classic “non-Dire-Straits-featuring episodes” of “The West Wing” – an hour of television known as “17 People.”

The episode itself, at its core, is about Toby learning the President has M.S. While everything else may be going on around them, this is the central point which, when it aired, had a great impact on what followed.
