Adam Rogers, a senior editor at Wired, editorializing in the New York Times:

The most popular TV shows [today] look like elaborate role-playing games: intricate, hidden-clue-laden science fiction stories connected to impossibly mathematical games that live both online and in the real world. And you, the viewer, can play only if you’ve sufficiently mastered your home-entertainment command center so that it can download a snippet of audio to your iPhone, process it backward with beluga whale harmonic sequences and then podcast the results to the members of your Yahoo group.

This extended product placement disguised as an obit for Dungeons & Dragon co-creator Gary Gygax is supposed to make geeks sound cool but makes me want to learn acoustic guitar and live in a yurt.
