Transcript

Cueball: [sitting behind a desk labeled XKCD.COM] We've made a huge mistake.

Cueball: I figured starting a cloud services company would be easy. After all, I've got tons of computers!

Cueball: Facebook, Twitter, Tumbler -- They all struggle to protect privacy and user data ... and we offered a solution. I forget what it was, though.

Cueball: Anyway, long story short, we screwed up immediately and lost tons of their data. Also a bunch of stuff is literally on fire?

Cueball: We can fix this. But we need your help.

Narration box: Help us recover user data before Facebook & Co notice we lost it.

New here?

Feel free to sign up for an account and contribute to the explain xkcd wiki! We need explanations for comics, characters, themes, memes and everything in between. If it is referenced in an xkcd web comic, it should be here.

  • List of all comics contains a complete table of all xkcd comics so far and the corresponding explanations. The red links (like this) are missing explanations. Feel free to help out by creating them!

Rules

Don't be a jerk. There are a lot of comics that don't have set in stone explanations, feel free to put multiple interpretations in the wiki page for each comic.

If you want to talk about a specific comic, use its discussion page.

Please only submit material directly related to—and helping everyone better understand—xkcd... and of course only submit material that can legally be posted (and freely edited.) Off-topic or other inappropriate content is subject to removal or modification at admin discretion, and users posting such are at risk of being blocked.

If you need assistance from an admin, feel free to leave a message on their personal discussion page. The list of admins is here.
