xkcd in the Times

xkcd, the webcomic, makes the New York Times. I’ve just started reading the strip recently, and it’s funny. I like that it has things to say beyond the usual “I like these movies and video games.” It’s geeky, but with intelligence. And it’s romantic.

Plus, it has a full-featured RSS feed, so I can read it in a way convenient for me.

    According to the webiste:
    How do I write “xkcd”? There’s nothing in Strunk and White about this.

    For those of us pedantic enough to want a rule, here it is: The preferred form is “xkcd”, all lower-case. In formal contexts where a lowercase word shouldn’t start a sentence, “XKCD” is an okay alternative. “Xkcd” is frowned upon.

    The proofreader in me gets mildly annoyed by people who want to create their own rules like that. :)

    :D It’s one of the things that make xkcd so great.
