The JoyPoll was...

Do you expect your online friends to do a few things for you, like retweet your tweets?

  • No, I don't expect them to do anything for me.
  • Well, it would be nice, but I don't expect them to.
  • Well, I would hope they would every now and then.
  • Absolutely, that's what friends are for!
  • Forget the retweets, I expect them to do real things for me, like buy me dinner, get me jobs, and lol at my jokes.
  • WTF, who has online friends?

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 is now in its 12th year. We're very proud to be featured regularly on places like AllThingsD (from the people who publish The Wall Street Journal), and Folha in Brazil, and Mashable!

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 OSX. 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!
