sup memesters and soccer fans. sooo world cup 2010 is close upon us and i thought this is a great opportunity for us to beef up on football-related memes.
for those less familiar with the games, FIFA world cup has long been the most viewed sport event in the world and needless to say, this makes a very memely occasion for the interwebs. of course, given its high fidelity nature, they’re less likely to be long-lasting memes, but nevertheless worth documenting. See Google Insights result for World Cup.
so far, we’ve covered less than half a dozen football-related memes in the database:
so here’s my proposal:
1. documenting football-related memes in the weeks leading up to world cup 2010. with sufficient info & media, these entries will be expedited for confirmation.
2. monitoring memetic activities and online buzz during this month-long event. if you frequent football-related forums and websites, this should be an easy task & we’d love your help.
3. community voting on the most memorable moments of world cup 2010, which will be then turned into an episode in august (or i hope).
let the memery begin!
