The Joy of Tech comic

| Comment! | | | | |

The Joy of Tech and Geekculture.com went dark on Wednesday the 18th in protest of the U.S. Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and PROTECT-IP Act (PIPA).

The U.S. Congress was and is considering censoring the Internet, even though the vast majority of Americans (and citizens of other countries) are opposed. We need to kill these bills to protect our rights to free speech, privacy, and prosperity. Learn more at AmericanCensorship.org

What do you do when the Internet is dark?

  • Clean up my house.
  • Refresh, refresh, refresh!
  • PANIC!
  • I try to get some exercise, maybe go outside for a walk.
  • This is why I carry a cached version of the Internet at all times.

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), Bloomberg Businessweek, Folha in Brazil, and others, both on the web and in print.

You can follow us on Twitter @Nitrozac and @Snaggy, or on Google+ at +Nitrozac JoT and +Snaggy JoT.

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, OpenOffice.org, and others, including Microsoft (yep, we do use Microsoft Office for Mac on occasion). Nitrozac uses a Wacom tablet to draw her illustrations.
