Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - Cartoons as New Media Renaissance

« Are You Just Checking the Box on Conversation? | Main | FEED is About Consumer Behavior »


@Alex - I forgot The Simpsons - and of course Family Guy, South Park, etc. Then again, I do not watch TV anymore, not for years, so I didn't have that as a ready reference point.

@Guhmshoo - That is a great point. Even those of us who cannot draw, and I'm one of them, can now create cartoons. We do need more humor and laughter in our lives.

Let's not forget all the wannabe cartoonists (some like me who can't even draw) that have been enabled by sites like Amateur cartoonists for the first time can create and share their creativity and humor with a global audience. And if there's one thing we all need more of, it's humor.

Love it... no doubt about it... never was a 'cartoon-nut,' but with the social media phenomena, caricatures are all you are able to get whether it is pixelated or vector art... The cartoons that were always the most fun for me while I was 'slightly' into them were the ones that were the most realistic... I guess the closest I could analogize would be The Simpsons - they are based on reality - where Popeye and the Roadrunner are more 'superheroesque' ... A lively post indeed!
