Anyone remember this Intervention episode with this woman Allison who was hooked on huffing computer duster? I remember when it first started making the rounds online, quite a few remixes began popping up, with some of them riffing on her “walking on sunshine” Does anyone have a clue on which websites the videos were initially passed around on and want to start up an entry?

An Internet meme is an idea that is propagated through the World Wide Web. The idea may take the form of a hyperlink, video, picture, website, hashtag, or just a word or phrase, such as intentionally misspelling the word “more” as “moar” or “the” as “teh”. The meme may spread from person to person via social networks, blogs, direct email, news sources, or other web-based services. via Wikipedia So according to that definition, a viral video can be a meme....
So after last week’s round of mod level ups we decided to bring on some new mods as well! Entry mods: Platus, MisterJ, TehBrawler Forums: Verbose Image mods: Oclaf, OCtaPuS Congrats guys!
I can get its own entry. Just needs to mention its similarities to Net Noob, Internet Grandma and Technologically Impaired Duck.
Our mods have been kicking ass as usual, so we went ahead and upgraded their titles and mod powers. Brucker, Doc, DPF, Sav and Trick Lobo are now Database Mods with entry, forum, image and video mod powers. Hiroman, RandomMan and Cyber6x are now Sr. Entry Moderators with entry and image mod powers. Thank you for being the most awesome mods on the entire Internet!
Sweet! I can’t wait for the dubstep remix.
Brad, Amanda, James and I maintain the website so we handle the video uploads and front page posts.
