Despite the world claiming that digital comics are the future, there is an inherent downside to reading comics on digital platforms.

Some Thoughts On Google Reader’s Impending Death

by Karl Olsonon March 14, 2013
With out much fanfare, and in spite of the fact that Google has various other vestigial services and products that haven’t gained any mainstream adoption or traction (Google+ is being crushed by Tumblr for coolness, and on that note, why isn’t Orkut jammed into Google+ yet?) the company has decided to kill one of my […]
