xkcd: Real Programmers Endorse Barack Obama

Alt: Real programmers set the universal constants at the start such that the universe evolves to contain the disk with the data they want.

Does that mean God is a real programmer?

On a side note, I was pleasantly surprised, and a bit shocked, to see this "blag post" from Randall Munroe, the author of the xkcd comic:
Okay, politics time.

I’m a political junkie, but I’ve largely kept that out of xkcd (other than occasional cracks about science and net-related issues). So this will be a one-time thing — after this post, you’ll hear no more political advocacy on this site for the rest of the election. But I think we’re at a balance point, where a few words between friends who are generally in agreement might make a difference, so here goes.

Please support Barack Obama.
He goes on to elaborate quite eloquently about why he thinks this. And honestly, out of all of the "endorsements" I've read, this is the most down-to-earth one. And go figure - he's not a politician.

I knew there was a reason I liked this guy. Besides that he has a great comic and is apparently a Super-Geek. He's also smart.
