Moving with the Times

May 26, 2008

First of all, I apologize again for the title.  Moving on, Linda Braun has once again directed me to a nice geeky focused article in the New York Times, this time an interview with Randall Monroe, creator of one of my favorite webcomics, XKCD.  The Times has become pretty savvy at pinpointing key aspects of the subculture and treating them respectfully (as opposed to say comic reviews with onomatopoeia’s in the titles).

Incidentally, today’s comic throws another gibe at BoingBoing’s Cory Doctorow, who quickly points out that the two will be joint guests of honor at 3-Pi Con, which will be in my neck of the woods in August.  Can’t wait to hear what the two of them together will have to say.
