Image of the Week #79, February 14th, 2013: From: The Intelligent Use of Animations by Kalliopi Monoyios at Symbiartic and Commenting threads: good, bad, or not at all. by Bora Zivkovic at A Blog Around The Clock. Source: Jim Benton. Bora Zivkovic has a reputation as an excellent communicator, especially when every once in a while on A Blog Around the Clock, he drops some serious knowledge. When Bora goes long-form, bloggers sit up and take notice. And while his reputation in choosing strong images isn't as well known, his history of blog banners tells the story. So when Bora employed this cartoon by artist Jim Benton (of Happy Bunny fame, no less) in his post, Commenting threads: good, bad, or not at all - it was pitch-perfect for bloggers everywhere. It saw the SciAm crowd imitating the comment troll for pictures at ScienceOnline. It was hilarious. Kalliopi Monoyios on Symbiartic breaks down why the image was so funny - and how intelligently Bora used it in his epic post. Find more about the amazing Jim Benton on his site, his print gallery, on Amazon and on Twitter @JimBenton. --Glendon Mellow, since Bora "can't typing" about himself.
