Understanding Comics: The Invisible Art by Scott McCloud. Interesting comic explaining some things about how comics work. I particularly liked the content on how timing works, with the "gutters" between frames used a way to signal time changes; and the notes on how flat and gradient colour is used.
Overall, pretty interesting.
What I'm Watching
Saw Captain Phillips: Paul Greengrass/Tom Hanks movie about a container ship captain raided by Somali pirates. Good movie: lots of tension, and it goes a bit into the tough lives of the pirates, rather than painting them as cartoonish villains.
It's based on a true story, though the ship's crew reckon the real Phillips was more reckless and complacent than the movie version.
Worth a look though.
Started the new job, but still settling in, seems OK so far. Cutting down on Twitter and web stuff a bit now I'm busy.
Socioeconomics What Piketty Leaves Out
Sci/Tech. Programming sucks.
