I love that Wired has an article about Geeky Embroidery (which, of course, includes cross-stitch). I too am a fan of Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog (LOVE that Nathan Fillion!), so between that and the fact that a) I'm a librarian and b) I'm married to a software engineer who is a gamer, I believe that means my geek cred is pretty much fully established.
Anyway, these are very fun projects and yet another example of how an art form such as cross stitch/embroidery can be extended and reinvented to include a multitude of artistic inclinations. Love it!
