Last night I went to see The Incredibles. and it was very good*. Funny as hell and related to the funny parts of real life families.

Wil Wheaton doing the opening keynote speech. Talked about blogging, how he loves it and how it allowed him to not be an actor but start as a writer. How it allows freedom of thought and speech without influence of corporates. About how he started on yahoo geocities or something then moved to blogger. Wasn't too inspiring *shrug*
