“Shoe on head” and the “Rick Roll“ are the main internet meme’s Ustream has witnessed, however there are hundreds more out there. To come up with these ideas its well known that the internet culture walks a fine line between insanity and genius – luckily there’s an entire convention dedicated to discussing, documenting, and celebrating them: Oh yes, thats right, it’s ROFLCon.
“Mix up a bunch of super famous internet memes, some brainy academics, a big audience, dump them in Cambridge, MA and you’ve got ROFLCon.
The conference is slated for April 25th and 26th of 2008.
It’s a group dissection of internet culture. What makes it work, why it works, how it works. We’ll talk about where internet culture has been and where we think it’s going.
Then, there’ll be parties. A music show, with memes performing their work live. And then a big blowout party at the end, with everyone dancing and rocking out.
Needless to say, this might be the most important gathering since the fall of the tower of Babel.” (taken from roflcon.org)
ROFLCon is taking place April 25 – 26. Stop by to see all your favorite internet super stars. If you aren’t laughing one minute in then something is seriously wrong with you.
