Happysad makes me happy
My favorite web comic right now is Happysad at Kartoen.be. It is funny yet wistful. The theme is one man's eternal quest for love, if you will. It may appeal more to girls, but I think it would appeal to many boys too, the ones who are romantics or think girls are mysterious creatures. It's adorable in any case, drawn in a very minimalist way.
How Dilbert gets created
Also on the subject of comics, a little old but here is Scott Adams' typical day creating a Dilbert strip.
Interview with my favorite manga author
Even less current, a fantastic interview (in English) of Moto Hagio, my favorite manga author of all time and one of my top authors, period. I should write about Moto-san more. If I ever met her I'd melt into a dribbling mass of awed.
NetNewsWire, and the best reason to have a feed reader
If you use a Mac you probably know already that NetNewsWire is now free. I have been NNW for a while now, paid for it and all, and it's indispensable to me. Now there are people who wonder why have a standalone feed reader when there are web based feed readers that are free. Nick Bradbury lists a number of good reasons (and incidentally they made FeedDemon free too, for Windows users). My no. 1 reason for using a feed reader is that feeds are awfully distracting. And most of them are not really directly related to my work or my writing, for blogs or otherwise. So when I don't want the distraction I can close it off and forget it. There are multitude of other good reasons for using NNW too, but that is up to the individual user to discover.
