After Trippy's campaign to Silicon Valley's Birthplace and then the US Capitol, the HP Garage became a national landmark and Trippy (with the garage in the background) made the cover of Wired magazine.

This, by the way, is all true.

As in, 100% All True? I wonder if I could get Trippy to autograph one of those for me?

Yep, 100% All True. ...with, maybe the tiniest of omissions... See Zannah's comment below for the rest of the story. Wired ran a promotion where some subscribers submitted their photo and, if approved, would get a custom-made issue with their photo on the cover. I have no idea what's going to be on the newsstands.

My friend had that issue of Wired with him on it and I almost choked on my drink when I saw it. Pretty cool!

Yeah! As soon as I saw the promotion, I offered Trippy (in front of the soon-to-be National Landmark) for my photo, and he got approved! (I'm hoping Pastilla will get a kick out of it.)

Zannah . . . Is Trippy cool enough now to attend your pumpkin-carving party this October?
