We called that nanoblogging when we made that joke a few years ago. Micro-technology is so 1900s. Get with the century.

Hi Rob,

Just to let you know that I featured this cartoon of yours on a blog post about how to handle provocative but well-intentioned people using a technique I read about in the book "Feeling Good" by David Burns. The context for the cartoon there was my claim that one should not convey their messages too briefly, because often shorter is too short.

I hope that blog post would spark some interests in the "Noise to Signal" comics which I enjoy (though often don't get to the bottom of some of the jokes, since I'm not too big into social media). I'd also note that recently your post about regular expressions, was mentioned in a post to one of the Perl mongers mailing lists I'm subscribed to.

Regards, Shlomi Fish.
