That’s right y’all. Mr Chuck Testa of Ojai Valley Taxidermy is locked in and ready to come out to ROFLCon. Nope! Chuck Testa has been used on current events such as the death of Steve Jobs and Muammar Gaddafi as well as on such childhood memories as Mufasa’s tragic end and the hard to cope with end of Albus Dumbledore, and even worked into some notorious Internet scandals.

Hope you are as excited as we are to meet him! More updates and registration info soon!

Back for another round of excitement we have Ethan Zuckerman, director of the MIT Center for Civic Media and ROFLCon alumni. Ethan has been quite busy this last year, discussing topics from SOPA to cultural developments in Nigeria. Here is his ROFLCon inspired post from last year.

Moar soon!

If you ask someone who Nate Dern is, you might just get a blank “huh?” which is a surprisingly appropriate response. His one liner in this AT&T commercial and resulting rage face created quite a bit of excitement on reddit, and now he is getting ready to meet you at ROFL3!

Still curious about Nate? You can have a good read up about him here. Until next time homies :)

Triple rainbow?

Good news everyone! The new year is upon us, hangovers are in effect, the countdown to natural disasters only John Cusack can get away from has begun and our speaker list is filling up.

What does it mean?! That’s right, Mr. Vasquez, aka Yosemite Bear, aka the Double Rainbow guy will be coming to you live from Cambridge. If you have not seen the video (impossible, I know), or the autotuned version then you definitely want to get hip to that ASAP.

Welcome to 2012 everyone :)
