Nerdvana: ROFLCon (From Leeeeroy Jeninks to Bert is Evil to LOLTrek to Tron guy, old friends come back from the abyss; good thing too, because I’ve got more than 15 minutes of love for our favorite memes of yesteryear.
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.
Update, 29 Apr: Wired has a decent set of ROFLCon profiles.
