Meme Machine

This is kinda cool. It is a flash (I presume) doohickey that presents a detailed interactive timeline of internet memes.

    That’s awesome. It’s not flash either, whoever made that is an ajax god!

    Sadly he doesn’t list the begging of the use of the word “troll” nor the origin of “spam.” (I remember the latter as around 1984 on Usenet with people soon thereafter posting ASCII pictures of SPAM. I used to have a tape drive of all the USENET archives from around the late 70’s through I think ’88 somewhere. Although I’m sure it’s decayed and unreadable by now.

    That is really cool. It takes me way back to high school and all of the funny stuff that we used to pass on. Remember when it was a novel thing to find something really funny and viral on the internet. Now it seems like I get a new one once a week.
