Because otherwise we’ll be starting a war around here… :P
This offends me!
!’m never returning to his site !
What is this board coming to?
(Ha ha, just kidding, Odi)
Wow Robert, you actually used an exclamation point as an “I” — very emphatic and oversensitive! LOL
That mean face is too mean Odi….for us sensitive types.
Anyway, how are we defining meme?
I have no idea, Robert. It’s all generated on this site.
Ruby and I were abusing the concept on STL the other day. It was great fun to have one’s way with that. ;)
the history of memes is very interesting. even religion is regarded as a meme, which is a fascinating idea: meme, internet meme
anyway this rly should be in off-topic. which is not accomplished by putting ‘off-topic’ in the title
Yeah how did that happen? Ooops..
Mods please place in off-topic.
It wont let you use your own jpegs?
Robert — nah, you have to go with the pics that are there, right Ben? …
but if u don’t use the photos provided it’s not a meme. unless you’re trying to create your own meme that will storm the internet like wildfire :) the site is manufacturing memes which is sort of artificial
sigh. guy i work with is obsessed with creating those soon memes
Part of what sucks about the rapid introduction of terminology in Internet culture is that that terminology doesn’t have enough time to have solidified technical definitions before they’ve already been reappropriated for some other use or even outright rejected from overuse. So ‘meme’ means the shared idea that propagates itself but also applies to a genre of memes that once were known as ‘macros.’ This thread features the meme genre known as ‘memes’ that were once macros.
I’m reading Technopoly by Neil Postman. Just thought I’d mention.
thanks for info DiB. also not pronounced ‘me-me’ lol
Speaking of meme me, me, me!
Japanese cats are memes right?
