The Joy of Tech comic

Eric Schmidt predicts name changing. | | Comment! |


The JoyPoll was...
What do you think of Eric Schmidt's prediction that people will soon be entitled to change their name to separate themselves from Google’s permanent record of their youthful indiscretions?
  • I could use that! Best idea ever.
  • Um, that's what nicks and the anoyonomus web were for.
  • Anyone stupid enough to post embarrassing pictures of themselves on the web, deserves to live with it.
  • What Eric trying to hide? Hmmmmm?
  • Ah, so that's Google's and Facebook's evil plan. Allow people to destroy their reputations, then charge to change identities!
  • I like my name, so I'm not saying anything, or posting anything!

We were an Amazon Associate for over 15 years, but soon after we published a comic unflattering to Amazon, they canceled our account.

When we tried to find out why, we received this reply... "under the terms of the Operating Agreement, we may terminate your account at any time, with or without cause. This termination is final and not subject to appeal." Gee, thanks Jeff.

But don't worry, we will still bite the hands that feed us, even if they don't help feed us anymore.

 About us...

The Joy of Tech is a comic about technology and pop culture, created by Nitrozac and Snaggy, and updated three times a week. We like to feature the people and events that are making today's tech news.

We've been making comics on the web since early 1999, and The Joy of Tech is currently celebrating its 10th anniversary. We're very proud to be featured regularily on places like AllThingsD (from the people who publish The Wall Street Journal), PC Live Magazine, and many others, both on the web and in print.

We currently live on Vancouver Island, Canada, where we have a lovely perspective of the silicon valleys to the south. We make The Joy of Tech using Apple computers, mostly on our MacBook Pros, running Mac OS X Snow Leopard. We use software from Apple, Adobe, BBedit,, and others, including Microsoft (yep, we do use Microsoft Office for Mac on occasion). Nitrozac uses a Wacom tablet to draw her illustrations.

Three blade propellers!
