The Nomads, Then and Now
I've just uploaded another design to my CafePress store. Again, it was re-drawn from an earlier Qwerty cartoon, #92 to be exact. In the old days, some farmers would slash and burn forest to use the land for a few years then move on when the soil is no longer suitable for farming. It's a bad practice for the environment, but that's a different issue for a different cartoon. Nowadays, us techies have to put up with spams clogging our Inbox. So what do some of us do when it's too much headache with one particular email address? You go out and open a new one and be more careful with giving out the new address. We have become the nomads of the digital age.
