RB202: Memeology

May 18th, 2012


Listen: or download | …also in Ogg

Two weeks ago, the Berkman Center co-sponsored the third –  and, we learned, final! –  ROFLCon. For the n00bz, ROFLCon is a conference named after the acronym for “rolling on the floor, laughing” and devoted to celebrating internet culture. Friend of the Show Tim Hwang co-founded the event in 2008 when he and Christina Xu invited Tron Guy to Cambridge.

Both ROFLCon and internet culture have evolved since then, so we sent producer Frances Harlow on location to ask attendees, “What are memes, and do they really matter?”

    It’s my first time to hear the term memeology. Is it new or it is just me? Anyhow, your pictures look good with that rectangluar box you are wearing..
