Email comic: XKCD – file transfer
Have you ever struggled getting some files from A to B? This email comic by XKCD shows
the many ways you can share a file with someone being advised on the phone, but the end solution is…unexpected.
Alt text: “Every time you email a file to yourself so you can pull it up on your friend’s laptop, Tim Berners-Lee sheds a single tear.”
Remember, Tim is the guy who invented the internet back in the early ’90s so you could do everything you do today on the internet.
What is your preferred method of sending files these days? Via email, or upload them on Dropbox, Skydrive and the like? Maybe just sending an USB stick via snail mail is the best option – what goes on the internet stays on the internet, after all.
