Dave Secretary/Time For Some Stories At ROFLThing!

Like most people who hang out too much on the Internet, there’s a couple of memes that we follow here on the ROFLCon team that we’re pretty sure no one else has heard of or thinks is funny/cool. We however, find them hysterical.

Dave Secretary is one of these individuals.

Dave Secretary writes about his childhood in all caps with no punctuation, and it is a beautiful beautiful thing. He’s also responsible for Everything Is Irritating and Comics I Have To Explain. We’re pretty sure he’s our official candidate the as-yet unsung Bard of the Internet. Anyways, we invited him, and glad to report that we’ve heard word he’ll be probably showing up for part of the conference and the afterparty (and that “this is seriously going to rule. i almost fell out of a speeding bus earlier today.”)

So if you’re out there, and you happen to love Dave Secretary, you should come out and meet him.

Chea! Continuing in the barrage of information that we’ve been lovingly filling you RSS feed with of late, AnnounceCon 2.0 is well underway and we’re way excited to be announcing Dallas Penn and Rafi Kam from Internets Celebrities as featured attendees! Their bud, Jay Smooth of Ill Doctrine and HipHopMusic(.com) will also be in attendance.

These cewebrities have created several well received video essays that were featured on iFC and are the self proclaimed ” Woodward and Bernstein for the YouTube generation.” These two are definitely some dudes that you want to hang out with. Watch out because their super stellar director, Casimir will be hanging around as well, maybe they want to film us?

Greg Galant, Creator of the Shorty Awards, At ROFLThing-NYC

So, if you’re a user of Twitter at all (hah!), you’re probably aware of the phenomenon of The Shorty Awards, the first ever awards granted to those who have been showing particuar artistry at expressing themselves in 140 characters or less.

Several of speakers are contenders for top-dog spot at the Shorty Awards this year (namely, the all-caps feline empire that is SOCKINGTON), so we figured it was only appropriate that the Shorty Awards themselves make an appearance.

That’s right, Greg Galant, one of the masterminds behind the Shorties, will be attending ROFLThing!
