The Joy of Tech comic

The ambiguity of "Open" | | Comment! |


The JoyPoll was...
Is the tech world just as cynical and vitriolic as the political world?
  • Yes, and it is a shame.
  • It's way more cynical and vitriolic.
  • It don't matter, all's fair in business.
  • No, nothing is as bad as politics.
  • H.264 is SUPER EVIL and Google is doing the best thing ever and this is a frakin' fanboy comic!
  • I don't know what H.264 is. All I know is I like stuff to work when I surf the Internet.

 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 regularly 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.

with three blade propellers!
