Know Your Meme Credits
The Know Your Meme project started in December 2007 as a limited-run video series created by Kenyatta Cheese, Elspeth Rountree, Jamie Wilkinson, and Andrew Baron. After gaining a large following, the series expanded into weekly episodes and ushered in the creation of the Know Your Meme Database.
The Know Your Meme Database was built in December 2008 by Jamie Wilkinson and Greg Leuch of Rocketboom's R&D team and is powered by the hard-working members of our community.
The video series ran from December 2007 through December 2010, with invaluable production support from the Rocketboom Network. Key contributors included Joe Bonacci, Eric Brown, Don Caldwell, Joanne Colan, Patrick Davison, Leah D'Emilio, Bob Geile, Brad Kim, Greg Leuch, Chris Menning, Barry Pousman, and Mike Rugnetta. From December 2007 to December 2010, the Know Your Meme team wrote and produced over 65 episodes about internet memes and streamed a one-hour long YouTube Live show in September 2010.
The video production resumed in May 2011 with Forest Gibson joining as the new host, followed by Kristina Horner in December 2011 and Sarah Hiraki, Alison Luhrs and Rob Whitehead in August 2012.
