From WikiPedia:

xkcd is a webcomic created by Randall Munroe,[1] a Christopher Newport University graduate who worked as a contractor for NASA.[2] It calls itself "a webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language."[3][4] There is no particular meaning to the name,[4] which is simply a "treasured and carefully-guarded point in the space of four-character strings."[5]

The subjects of the comics themselves vary. Some are statements on life and love, and some are mathematical or scientific in-jokes. Some strips feature simple humor or pop-culture references. Although known for its crudely drawn cast of oddball stick figures,[6][1] the comic occasionally features landscapes, intricate mathematical patterns such as fractals, or imitations of the style of other cartoonists (as during "parody week"). Occasionally, realism is featured.[7][8]

The comic is available under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 2.5 License.[9] New comics are added three times a week, every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday,[2] at midnight[10] although so far they have been updated every weekday on three occasions: parody week, the five-part 'Choices' series and the 1337 series.
