"BT: How did User Friendly start ?"

"Illiad: I was just doodling one day at the office, an ISP I used to work for. I passed the cartoon around and my co-workers liked them, so I drew some more and eventually put them up on the Web."

"BT: Where do you get your ideas from ?"

"Illiad: From personal experience, and from talking to people in the community. The lion's share of inspiration comes from the community itself...."

"BT: UF has been compared to Dilbert, In your perception, is that a fair comparison ?"

"Illiad: It's a pretty shallow comparison at best. Yes, UF addresses a specific audience, but so does almost every other cartoon. Dilbert is written for the corporate-bound, whereas UF's focus is on geek culture and technology."
