The JoyPoll
Do you think that the proliferation of instant messaging, computer games, social networking, and the distraction of the Internet is rewiring your brain?
  • Nope.
  • Dunno, I couldn't get through that question.
  • I'm just choosing this one, as I can't get through all these answers.
  • Yes, I'm definitely re-wired, and it scares me.
  • Yes, I'm definitely re-wired, but it's a good thing.
  • Actually, I wish there were more choices in this joypoll, as I find the understated yet perceptive complexity of the question clamors for a more thorough examination and discussion of the labyrinth that is the relationship between technology and the human condition.

 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 just celebrated its 10th anniversary. We're very proud to be featured regularily on places like AllThingsD (from the people who publish The Wall Street Journal), Macworld UK magazine, 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.
