Wikipedia on xkcd

It figures that the launch of this blog coincides with a slow week for wiki vandalism.

Let's take a look at xkcd's own entry for a bit. Ten bucks if you can tell me why the section on the xkcd book is titled "Derivatives." (No, not really.)

The section was originally given the appropriate title "Upcoming Book." Later, someone thought that "Derivatives" was a better title. It stuck, somehow.

I also find it oddly interesting that "Men's romance" is listed as one of xkcd's two genres, the other being "Geek humor." Being that xkcd deals primarily with heterosexual relationships, how is it more of a "Men's romance" comic than a general romance comic?
