At work this week, I’ve been reading quite few reports. Call me old fashioned, but I still prefer paper to pixels. I think it’s the feeling of interaction through touching something like paper, rather than clickety click clicking a key board.
Technology break downs are an inevitable part of life; for me it’s more a matter of how you handle the situation rather than what you do.
So what happens at your home or office when it it all comes tumbling down?
More conference call cartoons inspired by this week’s work calls… And in case you’re wondering, I was Frank, not Bob.
But just between you, me and the internet; I have fallen into the Bob category on prior occasions… Shhh! Mum’s the word.
Sound familiar…Or should that be look familiar?
This cartoon was inspired by the online conference calls I make as part of day to day work in the office these days. However, it was when I reflected on the now 14 million+ YouTube views video A conference call in real life, that I thought to myself, how would I convert the idea into 2D cartoon form.
Do you make online conference calls at work?
What funny things happen to you in those calls? Who knows, I might turn it into a cartoon.
I’m not sure about you, but I do find the 140 character restriction on Twitter somewhat annoying. Anyway, enough of the whining.
Tell me, what’s your favourite speech or quote?
History is littered with famous last words. Here are a few:
Either that wallpaper goes, or I do.

Go on, get out. Last words are for fools who haven’t said enough!

Damn it . . . Don’t you dare ask God to help me.
To her housekeeper, who had begun to pray aloud.
Joan Crawford, actress, d. May 10, 1977
I should never have switched from Scotch to Martinis.
Humphrey Bogart, actor, January 14, 1957
Waiting are they? Waiting are they? Well–let ’em wait.
In response to an attending doctor who attempted to comfort him by saying, ‘General, I fear the angels are waiting for you.’
