For those who are wondering about the future of Know Your Meme in light of recent events, please check out the latest update provided by Rocketboomer slash KYM co-creator Andrew Baron.
KNOW YOUR MEME UPDATE
With regards to Know Your Meme, we are all still here, including Kenyatta and Ellie who have formalized their commitment to continuing on with active contributions, chiming into the forums, chats, the back end org, editorial, even the overall vision of what should happen next. And in addition to Kenyatta and Ellie, those of us who have been running the business of Know Your Meme on a day to day basis -- the Rocketboom Institute for Internet Studies -- are all still here at the lab working away. Today, myself, Brad Kim, James Wu, Don Caldwell, Olivia Gulin, AJ Mazur make up the core KYM staff working on matters of vision, front end and back end operations, editorial, community management, the design and interface and so many other aspects of the operations its hard to site them all. We’re keeping the servers running and managing the brain trust of those amazing minds out there in the community with the goal of continuing to provide a free and progressive place to do meme science -- to provide a place where the best ideas can be shared and celebrated. As a team, we have the monetary support we need to carry on the vision, we are tight, confident, organized, efficient and especially fulfilled.
To Kenyatta, Ellie, Jamie, Greg, Brad, James, Don, Olivia, AJ, Chris and so many more who I hardly know but give KYM so much -- you should truly be awarded the internet.
