Social Satire

Pogo was the creation of Walt Kelly (1913-1973). It was social satire disguised as a comic strip that appealed to all ages and all persuasions. It has never been equaled.

Anyone who participates in social media will eventually get hit with drive-by kaa-kaa. A thread of incoherent back and forth where the participants never seem to clock-in on each other’s take. It springs-up spontaneously and mysteriously and your business can find itself in one of the strangest phenomena in social tech. It’s evocative of our social predicament and it’s all been noted long ago by Pogo.
