The man behind xkcd

Posted by Ed on September 26, 2009

The man behind xkcd is Randall Munroe. He gave a pretty entertaining talk at Authors@Google. Learn about how he tried to solve a Rubik’s Cube while being drunk, worked on a complex resistor puzzle, asked Donald Knuth about an anecdote (Donald Knuth is the inventor of TeX) and what xkcd stands for (watch the video below):

The comics referred to in the video are:
Ballmer Peak, Python, Nerd Sniping, Pix Plz

One comic that I like is Purity.
