me too! i actually kept on reading til chapter four because it got so good. i wanted to take some time to see what you guys thought about the copyright section in the beginning. i found it really interesting as a writer and librarian myself to see someone so forward about copying/sharing works and supportive of remixing their work. it’s true, most of my favorite authors i’ve found through something someone loaned me or a copy i’ve found online.

Hi i like the internet.
I am KYM’s resident cat expert. I also like fandom-related topics, Tumblr and internet slang. Rose Lalonde is my spirit animal.
You can email me any questions (cat related or not) directly at amanda at knowyourmeme dot com.
Tomberry: Amandab is the last boss of KYM.
Random_Man: You’re my favorite deputy amandab
Taryn: on the internet, everyone knows you are a cat
Philip_J: Amanda goes into cardiac arrest if someone tries to force a meme

i’ve seen that dog EVERYWHERE! but i have only seen the snake derivative. i’d wait a bit.
my avatar is me and my best friend blanket, she is my precious princess cat. she turned 3 in march i also have a baby kitten but he lives at my mom’s house right now because blanket and him don’t get along. his name is socks. he’s about 7 months old. there are 3 other cats and 2 dogs in my house and my mom also has 2 cats my life is a zoo
yeah, i did that with all my towns :( i’ve played every ac game so far and invest so much time and then just let my town fall apart without me :((((( thanks for reminding me of all the time i’m about to waste lol
i haven’t played video games that aren’t minecraft in a really long time. i preordered this (and a 3DS) over the weekend and I am so so so excited. does anyone else play AC? Is anyone else going to get this?!
Are we still good for the first two chapters for Saturday, or do you guys want to wait a week so we can be sure everyone has a copy? I am down to do a google hangout if you guys want real time chat as well!
Well I didn’t actually write them, I just borrowed them from some teaching programs :) So, it’s Tuesday now -- I’m thinking having all the intro stuff (there’s a lot of it!) & first two chapters read for Saturday? Does everyone think that’s doable? We can always check in on Thursday or Friday and see how we’re doing :) On Saturday I’ll post a few discussion questions -- remember those spoiler tags! Also, feel free to pop in any time during the week to post your thoughts or questions!
So it looks like there are 21 chapters & a bunch of before/after extras (esp a few on copyright and transmission that i think are going to be really fun to discuss! I’m going through some reading guides now to help solidify a reading schedule. I’m thinking maybe 2-4 chapters a week if we can handle it? I don’t know what everyone’s general reading activities are though!
Welcome to the first round of KYM Summer Reading! All important links will go in this initial post. We are currently reading Cory Doctorow’s Little Brother Goodreads | Amazon | Project Gutenberg | Teaching Books Download the book for free here Reading Guide with Questions Another guide made for teachers Timeline: Introduction & first 2 chapters up for discussion beginning 05/25/13
Sorry this took forever, my cat was sick last week and everything was bad (she spent a couple days in the hospital but she is home and happy now!) THE WINNER IS LITTLE BROTHER! Tonight after work i’ll set up a timeline for when what chapters should be read by, is that cool with everyone?
@JHawx – Living With Hipster Girl and Gamer Girl by Jago Dibuja
It’s an advice animal based on Gordon Ramsay. no official name AFAIK edit, yeah the quickmeme page is just titled Gordon Ramsay
Yessss!!!! We can put it up to vote next round? When I get home tonight ill tally up the votes!!! Vote now if you haven’t yet!!!
Yeah, this is really confusing to me…What gives? Anyway to answer your previous question, if everyone hates it we can vote it off and move on. Also if someone doesn’t have it, we can try to find an online copy of some sort!!
OKOKOKOK Today is the last day to post suggestions for books we should read! I will make the poll either today or tomorrow morning!!! anyone else?!
re: shade/reading, that’s less internet slang and more drag slang, which is something i’m incredibly interested by, esp. since the explosion of rupaul’s drag race has introduced a lot of these terms into common slang.
Mashed Taters needs a ton of work but +1 undeadpool
hm interesting. I saw a lot on the OG receipt following a house fire or something where everything was comped (i think that’s what /r/olivegardenconspiracy was created for) but haven’t seen all these other subreddits. would definitely keep an eye on this.
