The Joy of Tech comic

Today's episode is the one we created for our appearance on David Pogue's Macworld Live! David is an incredible talk show host... hilariously funny, witty, and he made the experience so much fun! During the first half of our session, an audience member was picked by tossing one of our propeller beanies into the crowd. The person who caught it turned out to be a very good sport, whose name is Harold. Nitrozac took a photograph of him and then began her drawing, while the crowd watched her computer screen on giant monitors. We then moved backstage to the green room, where Nitrozac continued to work on the drawing while guests Phil Bates and then Leo Laporte were interviewed by David. After Leo's session, we came back out on stage and revealed Harold's portrait, then unveiled the comic's background with rest of the characters. The audience came up with some great taglines, and it was Larry Elchuck who came up with the one we used here! It was an absolute blast!
