Doonesbury Series From November 27 to December 3, 1995

November 27, 1995

Doonesbury sums up the web

Mike? It's Bernie! We need a web site!
We do?
Yup! We're falling behind. I want a strong web presence by next Monday, got it?
Um... sure. I'll get right on it, Bernie. Consider it done.
Beep! Beep! Beep!
Alex? It's me. What's a web site?
Oh, Daddy, I've explained it to you a zillion times!

Doonesbury sums up the web

Hank, what's a web site?
It's an Internet presence.
What's on it?
It doesn't matter. Build it and they will come.
Why do we need one?
Because the technology exists. Also, everyone else has one.
What's my motivation?
Fear. Greed. Take your pick.

Doonesbury sums up the web

Hank, how can I get a web site up and running by Monday? I've never even seen one before!
Easily remedied, my man...
We just call up our net server - like that - click on the browser, and we're in!
There are over 100,000 sites, but I've indexed some of the best on a hot list. This is my favorite page - The Demi Moore Tracking System...
The what?
It's updated every hour. Oh, wow - she just hit a waiter!

November 30, 1995

Doonesbury sums up the web

Okay, I've uploaded the home page graphics. Now what?
Now you can enter your text.
"Welcome to Bernie's Byte Shack, the hottest new site on the world wide web. We hope you'll enjoy our...
"...our..."
My God... People are already gathering! Hundreds of 'em!
They're waiting for you to finish the sentence.

Doonesbury sums up the web

Look at this, Hank - We're getting scores of visitors even while I'm building the site!
"Welcome! Here at Bernie's Byte Shack, we take great pride in our fine line of infotainment software products..."
"... all of which are available for purchase right here!"
Uh-oh...
Hey... They're all leaving!
Quick! Offer them something free!

December 2, 1995

Doonesbury sums up the web

What's this? An all-nighter? Mike, you're becoming one of us! One of the little people!
Well, Bernie said he wanted the site up and running by today.
So how's it going? What'd you upload?
Anything I could think of - product specs, release dates, promo copy. Basically I scanned in everything that was lying around the office!
Including a Chinese menu!
It was a long night. I'll clean it up tomorrow.

December 3, 1995

Doonesbury sums up the web

Any sign of him?
None!
Did you check the hard drive?
First place I looked.
Um... Hi, folks. We have something a little unsettling to report.
As many of you know, this fine feature was recently transferred to electronic file...
...which substantially facilitates its distribution to you, the valued reader!
Unfortunately, in all the confusion, one of the character files got lost...
Zonker's!
That's right - we no longer have any record of Zonker at all - no sketches, no model sheets, no back-up files! It's as if he never existed! The loss to this franchise is incalculable...
Guys! I found him!
Heelp!
Huh?...
What are you doing in there, Zonker?
Looking for loose change! Get me out!
Never mind - see you next week!

Quote of the moment
From the perspective of the highest dimension of Buddhist practice, the Highest Yoga Tantra, there is no distinction between gender. Even in that final life in which you attain Buddhahood, there is no difference whether you are male or female.

There are more female concerns in this system. For example, one of the root downfalls is for a male to abuse or to look down upon a female. If a man does that, it is disastrous. There is no comparable downfall for a woman looking down on a man. So we men are jealous.

~ The Path to Tranquility, December 7, 14th Dalai Lama ~
