p2pnet view P2P:- Earlier today, in the continuing Apple iPhone Prototype Left In a Bar story, p2pnet published a few details of how Gizmodo editor Jason Chen was raided by police, presumably following complaints by Apple.
Says Dilbert creator Scott Adams on his blog >>>
Two questions I am often asked:
- How far in advance do you work?
- How quickly can you publish a comic on a current event?
Today I will indirectly answer both questions by talking about something else entirely. I assume you’ve all been following the story of the Apple engineer who left a prototype 4G iPhone at a beer garden. I found this story too delicious to resist, but I worried that the story would become stale before my comics would work through the pipeline. I think the soonest I can get something published is in about a month, perhaps a bit sooner, but I’ve never tested it.
I drew two comics while considering my options. In the end, I thought it wasn’t worth the extra friction to push them to the front of the line. And it would be June 18th before they ran in their normal position, which seemed too far in the future. So here now, exclusively for you blog readers, the totally unfinished first drafts of those comics.
You’ll “never see these in newspapers”, says Scott.
Scott adds on his blog:
“Take a moment to marvel at the fact that I didn’t need to add anything to the story as it has been told in the media. All it really needed was Wally. I don’t think any of us will ever know what really happened. I based the comic on the media’s speculation of events. Remember that I’m in the parody business and not the truth business.”
