We’re pretty fond of the art of the single-serving website here at ROFLCon HQ. You know — black-and-white, no-muss-no-fuss, distilled awesomeness. IsItChristmas. IsBarackObamaPresident. HasTheLHCDestroyedTheEarth (that last one turned our guest invite down, no kid)

Those are all well and good for the laffs. But one site of that spartan-ly designed breed in particular, Greg Rutter’s “DEFINITIVE LIST OF THE 99 THINGS YOU SHOULD HAVE ALREADY EXPERIENCED ON THE INTERNET UNLESS YOU’RE A LOSER OR OLD OR SOMETHING,” is by far the best. There, in glorious Helvetica, Rutter lays down the gold standard titans of popular web culture, line by line, for 99 lines. It’s beautiful, possibly one of the best curations of ALL TIME.

It reads a little like All Known Metal Bands. It was written about in Time. And the Chicago Tribune.

Is there anything more you need to know? Mr. Greg Rutter will be at ROFLCon II.
