Animated Dilbert Finds Home On Web

Associated Press
 

Comic strip characters Dilbert and his not entirely faithful pet Dogbert are coming alive in 3-D video on the Internet, about two years after creator Scott Adams became the first to go online with a nationally syndicated strip.

Adams has joined with Intel Corp. and The Computer Network, or CNET, to provide a three-times-a-week dose of the cubicle-denizen humor that lampoons office life and overbearing bosses.

Adams says the new animated site is part of the natural evolution of the computer and entertainment industries, which are converging faster as technology improves.

“When you say ‘3-D on the Web,’ you’re talking the language of a lot of Dilbert fans,” he said in a telephone interview Wednesday from San Francisco.

The walking, talking Dilbert and Dogbert are found at www.mediadome.com, and will be archived at “The Dilbert Zone,” listed at www.unitedmedia.com.
