Heh... cool... I was just reading this article on David Pogue, and the first sentence makes a couple references to Nitrozac's Pogue Icon Set and his appearance in the comic:

quote:

David Pogue has arrived as a tech-world personality. After all, his face is emblazoned on computer icons.

Actually, Pogue was renowned as a mainstream source of technology insight long before the David Pogue Icon Collection came into existence (more on that later).


Then at the end:

quote:

Q. What's it like having your face on computer icons ( http://www.geekculture.com/download/davidpogue.html )? Flattering, or just weird?

A. Hilarious, mainly. The cartoon that inspired it ( http://www.geekculture.com/joyoftech/joyarchives/283.html ) is funny and gratifying: Its existence implies that my Missing Manual series has established itself at least enough that people have heard of it.


Way to go guys!!

Has Pogue sent a Cease & Desist order yet regarding the icons?
