Thank you for setting my life's course. In the mid/late 70's, my mom used to lug this huge 200 lb. teletype unit with phone coupler over school breaks, from Jefferson Elementary all the way out to Mound.

Was the first "video" game I've ever played (can we call it that since there were no monitors?!?). I wound up with a BS and MS in CompSci and have a great career as a software dev.

Just another human whose life you have had great influence, and I really needed to thank you for this.

Mr. Nye,

Thank you for doing this AMA.

My question is... I'm sure you've been approached by your fair share of fans. What was the most memorable moment in which you realized that your work has made a direct impact in one of your fans' life?

What's the craziest thing you've seen your Wolfram Alpha engine respond with, and what was the query you used? Are there any easter eggs you'd care to share with us?

One of the more difficult questions Libertarian political candidates face is within the domain of public safety regulations (like dumping toxic waste into the rivers, making sure planes won't fall out of the air). What is your stance on this, and if you are in favor of partial regulations, where/how do you draw the lines of distinction?

Thanks in advance, and best of luck to you in the upcoming race.
