The new Twitter… is lulz

Everyone wants to know what the next big thing on the internets is gonna be… At SXSW everyone wanted to know” what’s the new Twitter?” We’ll I’m not exactly sure, but I think it has something to do with lulz.

Why? One word: ROFLCon

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…

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.

The lineup of serious biznass people includes David Weinberger, Josh Schacter (the guy who made, Anil Dash from Six Apart, while the crazy fun internet memes include Leslie Hall, the Homestar Runner guys, Tron Guy and Leeroy Jenkins! It strikes me as totally weird, amazing and important that all these crazy fabulouses are converging for discussion of something so ridiculous and fun as internet memes. I mean, Facebook is so serious and corporate in comparison… and blue-coloured. What does it all mean?! I’ll tell you when I get back cuz all I know right now is that I’m going to throw up I’m so excited.

(PS there’s still room in the car if any of y’all wanna drive down with me and Lukezors!)
