Haha!  OK.  I'll do my best to abide by Wheaton's Law.  I assume Will Wheaton of Big Bang fame.

For sure. I'm a Trek nerd. Not Con nerdish, just a big fan. Still prefer the original, though.

I think he as an actor was fine in TNG. Wesley Crusher sucked.

I played poker against him in a hotel room at MacWorld NY in either 2000 or 2001. He sucked at that too.

Edit: Wil Wheaton, the guy, is by all accounts awesome. I meant Wesley Crusher sucked, and also that Wil Wheaton was bad at poker.
