Poor Pakku. Nobody understands you.
This weekend I was honored and excited to be invited to a webcomic panel…in the Philippines! Komikon 2014 was this weekend hosted in the Bayanihan Center in Pasig City. Webcomic creator Dr. Carlo Jose San Juan, of the Callous comic strip, reached out to the Webcomic Alliance and asked if we would remotely call in to join him and his fellow local artists in talking about webcomics! The other panelists were Hub Pacheco and Jonas Diego. While we had some trouble hearing them, through Google Hangouts Carlo could text us the questions and cue Byron, Dawn and I for our responses. It wasn’t perfect, but we all made it work!
I just marvel at the fact that it was even possible. Byron and Dawn and I are all in different states, and this convention was in an entirely different country! In my Friday evening, I was on a panel during their Saturday morning all the way across the globe. How astounding is that?? Yet again I was reminded of how many new things technology has made possible. And quite frankly, video calls are one of the most mundane developments of the last ten years. There are so many incredible advancements happening right now that it can be a little mind-boggling.
What technology advancement has wowed you recently?
