PC guy John Hodgman wows them at the Radio and TV Correspondents Dinner

You know John Hodgman as the PC guy in all of those Mac commercials (or perhaps from The Daily Show). I don't know if he really uses a PC in real life (he could very well be a Mac guy), but I do know that he's a very funny man. Last night he spoke at the Radio and TV Correspondents Dinner, and gave a very clever speech about President Obama, nerds, geeks, jocks, and Star Trek. You can tell Obama genuinely enjoyed the speech.

Didn't look down at notes once - very impressive.

The Hodge Man is definitely a proud Mac user.

His books ("The Areas of My Expertise" and "More Information Than You Require") are some of the funniest reads you'll find anywhere. For fans of his books (or even readers of his great blog), it's no surprise his speech at the Radio & TV Correspondents Dinner was so great.

We did a little Q&A with him last year, if anyone's interested: http://www.showbizmonkeys.com/features.php?id=1014

Obama definitely knew the name of the god that was worshiped in Conan the Barbarian.

Thanks for posting this. Thoroughly enjoyed it (as well as Obama's input). And I got all the Dune references! I am a nerd!
