Good afternoon, ladies and chaps — we’re sorry to interrupt your regular internet programming to bring you an exciting late breaking guest announcement today. Happy to officially drop the news that Biella Coleman, NYU Prof of Media Culture and Communication (read: awesomeness), will be a featured guest at ROFLCon II!

Specifically, she’ll be taking the helm and moderating our final mega-blowout keynote panel “Mainstreaming the Web,” with moot, Know Your Meme, Ben Huh, and Greg Rutter. Which is excellent.

Biella has done a great deal of work on the eccentric interfaces of internet culture and mainstream culture, and has had the fine distinction of presenting slides on lulz in various srs settings. For those among you of the definitively geekier persuasion, her name will probably be familiar from her turbo-charged work on open source/free software communities.

Anyways, this is superb news. Welcome aboard!
