Before Dilbert, before joke web sites, before Douglas Adams (well, no, not before Douglas Adams), there was Gigglebytes, the first and still longest-running humor column devoted to computers and technology.
I started writing Gigglebytes as bi-weekly humor column for Northern California Computer Currents in 1986. It would eventually run in various magazines and Web sites all over the world. Burned out on the 900-word column format, I gave up the column in 2008, after nearly 22 years of publication.
Gigglebytes existed long before publications started posting their articles on the Web. And the columns that were posted that way are, for the most part, no longer available on their original publication web sites (primarily because the publication no longer exists). I therefore created this blog primarily to post favorite old columns, each one back-dated to the date of original publication. I occasionally may write a new Gigglebytes piece for this blog, but not often.
