The Circle of Technology

Written by Kevin Hodgson

Dave Kellett, who creates the Sheldon Comics, has a comedic eye on technology (his main character, for example, runs a multi-billion technology company … as a kid). A recent story arc involves Sheldon’s grandfather finding some old family movies on film, and he struggles with how to convert it to a format they can actually watch. This strip in that series really captures the repeating arc of technology — from innovation, to acceptance, to obsolencence. And sometimes, it happens quickly. (You listening, Facebook?)
