Looks like an interesting Kickstarter campaign. I'm glad to see at least one of my local breweries is interested once it starts up. :)

According to a +The New York Times report, Google plans to launch glasses with a heads-up display by the end of 2012. They will include a display, mere inches from the wearer’s eye, streaming real-time info about your surroundings, similar to the various augmented reality applications we’ve seen on smartphones.

The data will be fetched through a 3G/4G data connection, and the glasses will retrieve information about their surroundings through GPS and several sensors.

The glasses will cost “around the price of current smartphones,” sources say. While definitely not very precise – current smartphones cost anywhere from $150 to $600 – this price range shows that Google intends the glasses as a product for the mass market.

Are heads-up display glasses the stuff sci-fi dreams are made of?

Jesus jet-skiing Christ.

Yesterday I blacked out my website and posted an animated GIF that explains what SOPA is and why it's bad. I've found the best way to get anyone to listen to me is to keep my messages insanely concise and saturate them with poop jokes and farm animals. My expectation was that I'd get some laughs from my readers and maybe get featured on a few oddball humor sites.

Instead, the animated GIF received coverage from CNN, Sports Illustrated, Mashable, Business Insider, MSNBC, and a bumload of other mainstream news sources. It was also trending worldwide on Twitter and according to Tweetmeme it was one of the most tweeted links on earth yesterday.

Why am I telling you this? Because I'm fairly certain getting koala lovemaking on CNN is the highlight of my career and I wanted to share the moment with you.

Why else am I telling you this? Because of the combined efforts of some of the internet's biggest players as well as countless awesome underdogs, you could tentatively say that the protests were a success. 18 senators backed off from the bill, 4.5 million people signed a petition, and anyone who used the internet yesterday for more than five seconds is now well aware of what SOPA is and how to stop it.

And as a comic artist, yesterday was one of the most exciting days of my career. I got to put Oprah on a jet ski and make a small difference in the world. I'm so excited about all this I might just go shampoo my toe hair. Thank you internet. Thank you for all the tweets, reblogs, and shares.

Yesterday, you gave me a raging brainboner so large and so mighty that it could be seen from space.
