Know your meme...

Do you find yourself wondering what a lolcat is? wondering why kids are referring to sad Keanu? or thinking - why are people sending me to that Rick Astley song all the time? Then you could be one of the few who isn't aware of Internet memes and the way they virally carry cultural ideas and stories from social networking accounts to emails and back again. Much like a virus, they evolve to try and keep themselves alive. 

If you need to understand more about meme culture, or you just want to join the fun, then you can visit Know Your Meme. This handy site is a database of all things meme - and never again will you have to ask "Who's Rebecca Black?"

    Seriously, though, this is something I've needed to pay attention to for a while...being out-of-touch, even slightly, does not help one's online presence very much.

    Thank you.
