Hehe. I love how enthusiastic the doctor is in the second to last panel.

I want this to happen to me some day, just so I can use that same joke.

8-Bit Theater: 2007-03-17: Early Edition

I’m still reading through the archive of 8-Bit Theater as I never finished it. I’m in a section of comics I never read before and this one struck me as rather hilarious. Particularly Red Mage’s comment in the second to last panel.

8-Bit Theater: 2007-03-22: Half of a Good Idea

That last line is golden.

Girls With Slingshots: 2012-05-02: Guest Strip: Dave Barrack

I laughed out loud at this one. Especially it being a work in progress.

Questionable Content: #2178: Graven Imagery

The girl’s interpretation amuses me greatly.

SOPA and PIPA – Combating Piracy Stupidly

by on Jan.18, 2012, under Articles, Blog, Comics, Computers, Culture, Gaming, Internet, News, Opinions, Politics, Video Games

For those of you who have been paying attention, there is a list of useful links below. For those of you who haven’t, stay awhile and listen.

Actions being taken by the United State government will begin to fundamentally change the internet. Please read or watch the following to understand what is happening and if you want to take action about it.

[spoiler show="For those of you who would like my words on the subject. Click here."]The United States created the Internet. Despite fancy names like “World Wide Web” and “Global Communication System” and “Series of Tubes”, the internet is not managed by the world. It is managed by corporations on the united states and is subject, for the most part, to US Law. Even more so these days since a majority of the people connect to the internet via their local telecommunication company (phone, cable, satellite, etc).

 

That being said the internet has been pretty untamed for the last few years. Anybody could put or post up anything. Your information was only as secure as how well your protected it. It was effectively the digital wild west. Now, however, the internet is in so many homes, has become the focus of so much economic use (online shopping, movie and song streaming, video games, marketing) that this can’t last. Just like the trains that brought big business to the west, killing off the last place where your only real protection was the gun at your side, progress is going to try to tame the internet for the good of all, to the detriment of the few.

 

This is more or less inevitable. The new internet that will come into place will be highly regulated and likely more forcefully controlled by the big economic interests that want to use it to provide services to the world for money. When they do, innovation will become exceptionally difficult. Websites such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and the like, will still exist, but their successors likely won’t appear.  Blogs, chat rooms, social networks, bulletin boards/forums system, may or may not survive in this new internet. Words like “National Defense”,  “Anti-Piracy”, “Copyright”, and others will be used to tightly regulate any site that tries to provide the public with ability to communicate and share.

 

Effectively the basis for the internet as we know it, sharing and communicating, will come to an end at the hands of capitalism and censorship.

 

The first steps for this have already begun. The United States government has two acts currently being discussed. The PROTECT IP act (PIPA) and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA). Both have been getting a lot of news. As of right now, both look to be dying heavily under media massive campaigns set forth by various websites and organizations, despite the money being thrown at it by media and telecom corporations. The best example is today, February 18th, 2012, where websites all over the internet are “Blacking out” or putting up protest notices. You can read up more about what these acts do in the links below, but to summarize the acts allow and empower the US government to try to block or remove internet services (primarily websites) that infringe on copyright, without significant due process.

 

Now I am not a proponent of piracy. I make a living off of software development and I hope to some day make a living as an author. These are both areas that have notably high piracy rates, which concerns me. I would like to be compensated for my effort and work but I also feel that censoring the internet is not the answer. So for now, I protest.[/spoiler]

And many, many more, including you, hopefully.

Comic Links: Girls With Slingshots, Schlock Mercenary, One of Those Days

Girls with Slingshots: 2011-06-17: #1182

Eeeeeemooooootions!

Schlock Mercenary: 2011-06-25

I love sentences that seem like they aren’t correct but that is simply because nobody would ever put those words together in that way. Heh. “All the bullets”.

One of Those Days: Revenge Day Pt 4: 2008-03-25

Premiering for it’s first time on The Singularity is One of Those Days, very specifically because of the Loom/Secret of Monkey Island quote, which makes it very much for the win.

Scholock Mecenary: 2011-07-10

Just an extremely well written multi-panel joke that I needed to share.

Girls with Slingshots

by on Oct.11, 2010, under Comic Links, Comics, The Power of Words, Writing

http://www.daniellecorsetto.com/archive.php?today=1012&comic=849

So our first comic link on The Singularity. Expect this to be a fairly common type of post. The above link is to a comic called Girls with Slingshots and is actually a comic I’ve posted before, just not on this blog. But even while re-reading I still find this comic hilarious enough to share. Again.

Remember people, watch what you write, or text.
