Is It Just a Joke?

As you can tell, I have taken a liking to BitStrips.  It's easy, fun, and believe it or not, more difficult to edit than a Twitter post.  140 characters is a bunch compared to a single-panel comic.

My dad printed comic books for years.  I learned to read by reading comics.  Every Friday, dad (and other people from his work place) would bring home the overruns and errors as they printed the DC Comics, Marvels, and Archie comic books.  The hindsight thing comes to mind.  When I finished reading a comic, we usually just threw them away.  So I suspect I disposed of probably $100,000 dollars worth of comics from age 4-13.

I am a fan of Dilbert.  Scott Adams makes great observations about the business workplace in just a few panels a day.  I'm not claiming that I have the skill of Adams, but I plan to address EdTech issues with the use of Sticklers.  I used to do this in the 80s in the church world, and my characters were stick figures who discussed "sticky" issues.

So, I hope you enjoy the comic, based on the collective information from the edublogospere and perhaps some personal experiences as well.

To answer the title question...no I do not think that education is a joke, but if I don't laugh at some things I may have to cry.
