The Joy of Tech comic

Today's is a special JoT, as we mark the passing of one of our heroes, Arthur C. Clarke. Looking over our work, you will find many references to his books and ideas. He was a main character in our comic series After Y2K, (we were told by an acquaintance of Arthur's that he had seen and liked the depiction!), and he and his concepts have been featured in the Joy of Tech several times. Arthur's writings had the ability to lift the reader to new conceptual heights and to make one believe that the human race is capable of anything if it put an intelligent mind to it. He was on this Earth for 90 orbits, but his work will inspire humanity for as long as we continue to look up into the night sky and dream.

Cheers Arthur!

The Joy of Tech is a comic about technology and pop culture. We like to feature the people and events that are making tech news. We tend to focus on Apple news and events because they often affect the industry in general, and because we are longtime Mac users here at GeekCulture Headquarters. We create The Joy of Tech using Apple computers, mostly on our PowerBooks, running Mac OS X Tiger. We use software from Apple, Adobe, Macromedia, BBedit, and others, including Microsoft (yep, we do use Microsoft Office for Mac on occasion). Nitrozac uses a Wacom tablet to do her illustrations.
