The other highlight was meeting Howard Taylor, creator of the webcomic Schlock Mercenary, and as I know him best, one of the hosts for Writing Excuses. Writing Excuses is hands down the best writing podcast I've found, and I completely geeked when I realized who Howard was. We talked a few times throughout the expo when we came across each other and I totally felt smarter just talking to him.
