From AmandaFM25 at TWoP on her encounter with Misha:

I told him that I study fandom in grad school and that I was at the con as a research project, and I joked that I could give him a reading list. His response? "I would like that."

Hee! I don't know why it amuses me so that Misha thinks fandom is a bug to be studied, but it does. I think someone on another journal--I can't remember who, there was a lot of Nyquil ingested last nite--commented that it was really awesome that it was like he looked into the dark abyss of fandom and instead of shrieking and running away, he was all, "Huh. That's interesting. I want to keep looking."

Which is pretty cool, when you think about it.

His degree is in social trends or somesuch, I forget the actual name of it, but I figured this was all right up his alley. So to speak.

But I really, really want to make slow, sweet love to his brain. He reminds me of a good friend that is that type - bouncing from mechanics to ideas and everywhere in between just to figure it out and understand.
They actual squick of something dicey isn't the interest - it's the why it's squicky, social reactions and interactions, how things grew.
We once spent an afternoon video taping people's responses to certain questions and never intended to use any of the tape. It was interesting just to see their response both with and without a camera in front of them.
