The New Yorker has a fun piece about David Shing — a.k.a. “Shingy” — AOL’s notorious “Digital Prophet” who makes a six-figure salary to do stuff like draw a cartoon “of a bear wearing zebra-print pants and a shirt covered in ones and zeros.” He also coins hip new tech terms, like HoMo. HoMo! Absolutely brilliant.
