xkcd began in September 2005, when Munroe decided to scan his doodles and put them on his personal website.
According to Munroe, the comic's name has no particular significance and is simply a four-letter word without a phonetic pronunciation, something he describes as "a treasured and carefully guarded point in the space of four-character strings." In January 2006, the comic was split off into its own website, created in collaboration with Derek Radtke.
As a student, Munroe often drew charts, maps, and "stick figure battles" in the margins of his school notebooks, besides solving mathematical problems unrelated to his classes.
By the time he graduated from university, Munroe's "piles of notebooks" became too large and he started scanning the images.
It was one of the first things I thought of when I saw the alt-text, and as Time has elapsed and this thread has passed through various stages of absurd, morbid, off-topic, lighthearted, and so forth, I feel like Randall has constructed a piece of performance art with all of us included as integral players.... Cause tomorrow's just another day, and I don't believe in time. Sandcastles in the sand (Sandcastles in the sand)Thought I could fly when you held my hand (Thought I could fly)Eternity turns to black and white It was the greatest week and a half of my life Somebody was talking about songs about 30 newpix ago.
"Time" is the 1,190th strip of Randall Munroe's webcomic xkcd.
Within the app, you can view the current frame and get links to xkcd.com, the XKCD forum discussion of the strip, and an interactive GIF of all the frames together.
Recent changes: Initial release XKCD comic #1190, entitled "Time", is a (still ongoing) series of pictures, updating every 30 minutes.
There is a time for everything,and a season for every activity under the heavens:a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to embrace and a time to build sand castles. I have been watching this since the first or second image... Perhaps with a moral somewhat similar to Simon & Garfunkel's "I Am A Rock".
But that wouldn't have any significant connection with "Time" that I can think of, except perhaps in the sense of "doing time." So I wouldn't expect that to be it.
I've been wondering if the point of the comic is about becoming more self aware of the amount of time spent pondering things which are ultimately trivial in our lives and that we have no influence over.
