Drones come to Techopolis!
Between the driverless car, internet balloons and Amazon's delivery drones, it seemed like high time to take a closer look at the technology industry in a cartoon. Now don't get me wrong, I'm all for the internet and technology-- it's how I've made my living for the past twelve years or so-- but I definitely have some luddite-induced skepticism in my bones.
Actually, it's not the various technologies and innovations themselves, but the hype that accompanies each shiny new technology that really gets my cartoon gears turning. I'm a huge fan of 60 Minutes, but their piece on Jeff Bezos and his drones made the days of Mike Wallace selling cigarettes look dignified. Technology companies seem to have perfected the art of getting various news outlets to sit up like excited puppies with each new release of some product. (See iPhone anything.)
Enjoy the cartoon and share it with your friends, and watch out for drone deliveries. I'll write more about this topic and this cartoon on the blog, so stay tuned and thanks for watching the animation!
