Nitrozac and Snaggy, authors of The Best of The Joy of Tech cartoon book, have written a hilarious article on O’Reilly’s MacDevCenter about how to spruce up your appearance on iChat AV. “Just about everyone looks great behind a cursor, but the days of communicating online exclusively with text are numbered,” notes the article. “The Internet used to be a place where we could only read each other’s words and your imagination would fill in the visual voids. Now that’s all changing.” Tips and techniques are offered for filters, lighting, third party accessories, grooming, etiquette and more.
