Acknowledgments

As with any book of this sort, I have plenty of people to thank. First off, Kathy Simpson deserves a huge thank-you for her fine editing work, pointing out logic problems and turning the raw text into something readable. Cliff Colby deserves similar credit. Without Cliff, the book wouldn’t fly—and that point is clearly demonstrated in Chapter 4, in which a Mii is created in his honor.

It’s also important for me to thank the folks at Engadget and Benjamin Heckendorn, who allowed us to use a picture of his Wii Laptop creation.

Despite the fact that my kids are constant distractions and thorns in my side, their contributions to this book were invaluable. From my littlest one (Natasha, who’s 3) to my oldest (Adam, who’s 8), they all contributed a great deal in helping me figure out the nuances of the Wii.

My better half, Cori, is always a help during the writing of a book. Even she had to admit (grudgingly) that the Everybody Votes Channel is a nice way of bringing the family together so that we can discuss our opinions about the various questions asked and then see how our ideas compare with the rest of the world’s.
