What's the moral of this comic?

  • Performance art is often stupid.
  • Humans, especially ones on the Internet, can be really, really stupid.
  • You can warn people about bad things over and over and over, but they will keep doing it anyway.
  • People will gladly give up their soul to be a part of a group.
  • Facebook isn't free, and never will be.
  • All of the above, plus a few more.

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 and pop culture 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 re/code, 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 OS X. 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.
