The JoyPoll!

What's the solution to Facebook becoming a huge psychological profiling collection machine?
There's no solution necessary, especially if my preferred candidates win elections.
We need some kind of regulation to protect people's privacy from corporations getting too much data on us.
We need more competition, more social networks, or break up Facebook, so Facebook doesn't get all the information.
More people need to wake up and seriously limit their time and the information they share on Facebook. In other words, get a real life.
The only hope for humanity is for a colony on Mars, with an Internet air gap separating us!

About us...

The Joy of Tech is a comic about technology and pop culture, created by Nitrozac and Snaggy, and updated three times a week. We like to feature the people and events that are making today's tech and pop culture news.

We've been making comics on the web since early 1999, starting off with After Y2K, and then The Joy of Tech, which is now in its whoa... 17th year!

You can follow us on Google+ at +Nitrozac JoT and +Snaggy JoT and +JoyofTech

We currently live on Vancouver Island, Canada, where we have a lovely perspective of the silicon valleys to the south. We make The Joy of Tech using Apple computers, mostly on our MacBook Pros, running Mac OS X. We use software from Apple, Adobe, BBedit,, and others, including Microsoft (yep, we do use Microsoft Office for Mac on occasion). Nitrozac uses a Wacom tablet to draw her illustrations.


There are many ways to support our work and keep the comics coming,
