Dilbert

The first Dilbert comic strip by Scott Adams was published on this day 25 years ago. Today, Dilbert appears online, in 2000 newspapers in 70 countries, and in 25 languages. o_O

As a tribute to the geek with the curly tie, I’ve put together a small sample of links that will hopefully give you a flavour of the uniquely “Dilbertesque” sense of humour.

The Official Dilbert Website

The latest Dilbert strip can be found here, and there’s an archive of every Dilbert strip going all the way back to 1989 in case you missed any!

Scott Adams’ Blog

You never know what you’re going to get from this blog. Scott holds forth on a wide variety of topics, but his observations are always written in an entertaining and thought-provoking way.

Quotes

Wikiquote has separate pages for Dilbert and Scott Adams. An Odyssey of Quotes also has entries for the former and the latter. There is some overlap between the two sites, but not too much.

Goodreads has an ever-growing selection of Scott Adams/Dilbert Quotes as chosen by its readers.

Urban Legends

A collection of supposed Dilbert One-Liners and another of Dilbert Neologisms have been in circulation since the 1990s. But Scott Adams had nothing to do with them, as explained in this blog post.

There’s also an urban legend of a competition in a magazine. Readers were asked to submit quotes from their real life Dilbert-type managers, but this BlogHer article reveals there’s no evidence it ever happened.
