“We must recover our sanity where 100 million users does not represent the goal criteria of every new service. We must recover the mindset where a service used by 10,000 users, or 1,000 users, or 100 users is admired, respected, and praised for its actual success. All of those could be sustainable, profitable ventures. If TechCrunch doesn’t care to write about you, all the better.”—» 24 February 2012, baked by Ben Ward @ The Pastry Box Project (via adactio)
Microsoft Comic Chat was an application released in 1996 (with Internet Explorer 3.0) that took normal IRC chat room discussion and displayed the messages as if they were said by comic strip characters. It’s the most eccentric widely-released chat client ever.
It also helped put Comic Sans on the computers of millions of people.
