List of webcomics This list of notable webcomics includes comics which are (or were) primarily published on the Internet. It is organized chronologically by the comics' start dates. The dates shown after a name relate to the period during which the comic began appearing and, in the case of defunct comics, finished appearing. There is usually a fair degree of accuracy about the starting date, particularly in the case of comics whose archives are organized by date, but because of sporadic updates or the gradual loss of appeal of a particular strip the termination date is often uncertain. An em dash (—) appearing instead of a termination date indicates that the comic is still being published.
Interesting Facts and Fun Facts Anatidaephobia is the pervasive, irrational fear that, somewhere in the world, a duck is watching you. The person believes that no matter where they are or what they are doing, a duck is watching them.

Emily Miethner - Claudia Chan A: I graduated from the Hofstra University design program in 2010 and the Fine Arts Department is like family to me.

The Flop Box A bad beginning makes a bad ending 4/14/2014 Peter Saul curated group show @ Zürcher Studio Austin Lee Taylor McKimens Karl Wirsum Judith Hudson Irena Jurek Why Product Thinking is the next big thing in UX Design Uncover the jobs the product is hired for A product has a core user experience, which is basically the reason the product exists. It fulfills a need or solves a problem people have. By that, it becomes meaningful and provides a certain value. If the problem is non-existant, or the solution doesn’t fit to the problem, the product becomes meaningless and people won’t use the product; which in turn leads to the downfall of the product. Wrong solutions can be fixed, but non-existant problems aren’t adjustable at all.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 Review: 1. Introduction Camera based on a production LX3 with V1.0 firmware (White balance section updated to reflect V1.1 performance) Panasonic's LX series has always been home to the company's most ambitious compacts, offering a range of photographer-friendly features in a small, stylish and solid body festooned with external controls. It's been two years since the launch of the LX2 and the market has changed a lot in that time - the level of features offered even on inexpensive models has grown and the cost of all cameras, particularly DSLRs, has fallen drastically. Both of these trends risk reducing the potential market for premium compacts if their features are available on cheaper compacts, and much better photographic tools (in terms of flexibility of purpose and image quality) are available for only a little more money.
