If you had you might have noticed the text in bold, here a clue if you still can't find it.
"I like Google Plus. Some of the smartest people I've ever read are on Google Plus, and the Hangout is amazing. But Google is doing everything it can to force Google Plus on everyone, and it's pissing me off."
I got to see him and most of the Eureka cast at DragonCon in 2011. He was funny as hell. At one point during the panel Wheaton said he was disappointed nobody had yet asked him to sign their boob. Without missing a beat Colin Ferguson asked somebody to give Wil a pen and started taking off his shirt. It was one of the best panels I've ever seen at an sf convention.
