Here's an Editor & Publisher piece about Scott Adams of Dilbert adding a blog to his on-line efforts. This gets noted where other cartoonists starting similar enterprises wouldn't for a couple of reasons. First, Adams may be the cartoonist who has gained the most by a strong Internet presence, of which this would be a new permutation. Second, Adams notes that his e-mails are starting to get screened out by sophisticated systems at big companies, and the blog is a way to communicate to his readers distinct from that. For some reason I find that interesting.
