Did you noticed that the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartoons went to a self-syndicated ANIMATED series of cartoons by Mark Fiore?
The Pulitzer Board sure is moving ahead.
This means that:
* The editorial cartoon winner for this year can not be published in a print newspaper.
* And the Flash animations won't work with your iPad, either (Apple doesn't like Adobe). Or your smartphone.
