Rambling on as promised — good news coming out today as I’m happy to officially announce that our friends Ellie Rountree, Jamie Wilkinson, and Kenyatta Cheese, from the Rocketboom Institute for Internet Studies project Know Your Meme, will be attending and featured at ROFLCon II this spring!
Know Your Meme, in addition to their by-now extensive series of shows, is the current home of the Internet Meme Database, a web culture resource online only rivaled in size and scope by the batshit insane (though remarkably informative and comprehensive) shadowy counterpart Dramatica. It’s absolutely worth checking out the jam-packed site, if you haven’t seen it yet (including their surreally awesome recent episode on autotune with special guest Weird Al).
In any case, we’re pumped to have them aboard for the ride, sharing their experiences, thoughts, and adventures in becoming mega-famous. Welcome!
