This morning I was pleased to be on NPR’s Morning Edition (audio of the segment is available here). Along with Dr. Annetta Cheek from the Center for Plain Language, I discussed the Center’s upcoming ClearMark and WonderMark awards, which praise clear (and lambast confusing) business communication.
If you’re visiting this site from NPR, thanks for stopping by! “Wondermark” is a comic strip published twice a week, containing jokes on a variety of topics. For example, this episode in particular takes on the problem of confusing business documents.
The “random comic” button to the left of each comic will afford you a whirlwind tour of the site. There’s also this brief list of some of my favorite comics as well, which is a good Wondermark primer.
Finally, if you really like the comics, I have books, posters, prints, and so on available as well. It’s my primary source of income, and I rely on the kind support of readers like you!
WHICH REMINDS ME: The Onion A.V. Club just posted a great review of my latest book, Dapper Caps & Pedal-Copters. Thank you, A.V. Club! I am glad you liked the book — I like it very much myself, so it’s pleasing to see that our tastes are aligned. It just makes coexistence so much simpler.
