I read one of these poignantly humorous comics on Not Invented Here a while back and since I wasn't sure it was OK to repost I emailed asking for permission. Nada. Then I saw Martijn de Vrieze posted a collection of scalability comics from NIH and decided what the heck (click image to read on site):
Thanks to Martijn for curating the collection and NIH for creating them.
And I agree with Martijn, they do capture an ineffable quality about the entire space.
