Just as everything old is new again, the converse is always true…everything new will be old someday. Will Twitter and Facebook still be around many years from now? Who knows… here’s a toondoo I put together about a conversation we might have in the future.
Here’s my entire I.T. Happens Series
I’ve always thought it was idiotic that college football didn’t have a playoff system to help decide their champion. Instead, they rely on polls and computer systems to crown their champs! As much as I love computers and technology, I think this is stupid. Let the players determine who the best team is on the field! Leave judging in events (not sports) that deserve it such as figure skating and gymnastics, not football!
This comic strip is part of an on-going series called I.T. Happens. Here’s the entire series.
Is your doctor web savvy and into the whole social media and web 2.0 thing?
Listen carefully for keywords he/she might use.

Here’s my homage to social networks.

Howard/Baines must’ve had this experience when they brainstormed for their wonderful new web app.
None other than Clive Howard himself from Howard/Baines saw this comic strip and sent the following email to me! (He approved sharing it, of course)
That’s great. So close to the truth
Here are all 10 I.T. Happens!
This one illustrates the natural talents that some of us have no matter what the age.
I imagine that GaryVee was always a dynamic personality, even as a kid selling lemonade.
Here’s the entire I.T. Happens series.
Here’s an interesting sidenote about this comic strip. I showed it to Darren Rowse, A.K.A ProBlogger
to get his opinion of it since he was the original name that I used in this comic and I wanted to make sure that it wasn’t offensive to him in any manner. Well, he confirmed that it was fine and that it didn’t bother him in the least. However, he made an interesting comment when he said “You know, he kinda looks more like Seth Godin”. Well, shoot, I thought. Of course it does! So, off I went to double-check and here’s what I found.
First, here’s Darren Rowse A.K.A ProBlogger.
and here’s Seth Godin A.K.A The Marketing Guru (as advertised on his website) next to the comic Seth
By George, I think ProBlogger was right!

Here’s the entire I.T. Happens collection in one ToonBook (7 installments)
While having lunch without my trusty laptop and its aircard, I rather enjoyed being outside with a new book I’ve been meaning to read. It was a pleasant change of pace being “offline” and “disconnected” from the world for a brief period of time. Sure, I still had my Blackberry but I turned it off and pretended to be in 1991. Ah, ignorance is indeed bliss!
I got to thinking that this might become a regular routine for me and wondered how many others felt the same way.
Then I had the idea to do a new installment for my I.T. Happens comic strip regarding this notion of being offline and perhaps antisocial. How many would join a network of people who are tired of always being connected and socialable?
I know, antisocial types wouldn’t want to belong to any network.
Anyway, I just think it’s a good thing to be Net free sometimes and get our head out of the cloud (among other places).
Get some fresh air (without any Adobe or Macbooks)!
