While surfing online today, I made the best discovery and thought I would share it with you all. It’s KnowYourMeme.com, from RocketBoom, and it features examples and the history of internet memes, from Three Wolf Moon to Dramatic Prairie Dog. It was featured as one of the 50 Best Websites of 2009 by Time Magazine. Most memes are spread using social media and popular websites like 4Chan, so I thought it seemed only appropriate to share since it highlights the power of social media and how almost anything and go viral in a very short period of time.
In addition to the actual website, Rocketboom also does a great series of funny, yet informative, videos about the most popular internet memes. One of my favorites, Keyboard Cat, is featured below:
