E Gary Gygax

Some quickies on the death of E. Gary Gygax. Needless to say he was responsible for an enormous amount of inefficiency in my youth.

  • Great essay from the New York Times on his influence.
  • Outstanding infographic from the same article. I’m currently in the box “Blogging About Diagrams”
  • Wondering why none of the articles about his death are including the E in E. Gary Gygax.
  • Wikipedia lets me know the E stood for Ernest. I was guessing Eugene. Also, does the initial “Stand for” or “Stood for” after someone has passed away?
  • If you’d like to bring the spirit of youthful inefficiency to your present day desk-bound job visit this compendium of all the original books and materials for D&D.
