Hey there, everyone. I've had the good fortune of having Mike and Jerry do awesome stuff for me over the past three PAX East's. They signed my wheelchair at the first one. Jerry held up my leg like Simba in the Lion King at the second one and most recently, I stood up to give Mike a hug. (which made it on to the PAX East PATV episode...awesome) I had been trying to think of what I wanted to do at the next PAX East Q&A. I've had friends comment that I've been stepping it up each year. It also occurred to me that each year, it's definitely something for me. This year, I'd like to be a part of giving something back to them. So, I came up with an idea...
There are a ton of inspirational stories shared at the Q&A sessions, both at Prime and at East. I would like to get in touch with everyone that has shared an inspirational story at one of these sessions, get their full story and an autographed picture. These stories could be anything from "You inspired me to get out more and meet new friends," all the way up to "You saved my life." I will then compile these stories and pictures into a book, which will be presented to Mike and Jerry at PAX East 2013.
Now, for this to work, it should ideally be a surprise, so if there are any PA employees reading this, I would ask them to keep it hush-hush.
Here's where you come in, forum: If you're one of those people that has shared a story, please contact me! If you know someone who has shared such a story, please contact me! And finally, if you have such an inspirational story, but have just never had the opportunity to share it at a Q&A, please contact me! I'm really hoping to get a nice turnout for this!
If you have a story to share, please send it to me (along with a picture, autographed is preferred!) at facelesscog at gmail dot com
