Wil Wheaton's heart-to-heart with his folks
Posted by Jill | 1:02 PM

Wil Wheaton's Salon article (on which I blogged last week) created a bit of a shitstorm in his family. So at Wheaton's request to all who blogged on the story, I'm linking to his follow up at Daily Kos.

I think Wheaton is wearing a bit too much hair shirt here, triggered by the use by his parents of the Guilt-o-Matic 5000 WiFi Gnawing Self Doubt Generator, but I think that if publication of this story made his parents examine their views a bit and open some family dialogue, it's not a bad thing.
