A long long time ago, in a galaxy approximately 45 blocks away, I used to live with the undisputed king of nerdcore. He used to play a lot of video games, sing the same line of a song over and over into his computer until it was just so, and solve intergalactic crimes. He also turned me on to a lot of really good webcomics.
Achewood is a prime example.
A few days ago, Achewood's strip took the flowchart route, helping us to understand the mechanics of internet surfing.
In my experience, this is exactly how it happens. Except for that first box -- I'm always online.
