I’m a rambling man

ROFLCon.

Mix up a bunch of super famous internet memes, some brainy academics, a big audience, dump them in Cambridge, MA and you’ve got ROFLCon.

The conference is slated for April 25th and 26th of 2008.

It’s a group dissection of internet culture. What makes it work, why it works, how it works. We’ll talk about where internet culture has been and where we think it’s going.

Then, there’ll be parties. A music show, with memes performing their work live. And then a big blowout party at the end, with everyone dancing and rocking out.

Needless to say, this might be the most important gathering since the fall of the tower of Babel.

I am SO there. Well, probably not for the dancing.

David Weinberger, author of The Cluetrain Manifesto, will be there too. And the peeps behind XKCD, lolcats, HomestarRunner, and Worth1000.

April’s turning out to be a VERY busy month, as I’m also heading to the IBM Web 2.0 Summit April 15-17. Hackday is hosting a Birds of a Feather session. Luis will be there! And J-F!

And I see from dopplr that Ferdy will be at RSDC in June.

w00t!

  1. Hi Kelly! Have you decided where you are going to be staying and everything? I am thinking about staying at the Crown Plaza hotel although I haven’t decided just yet. Will probably create an internal blog post and see where folks would be going! hehe

    Really really looking forward to FINALLY meeting up!! Good stuff! 😀

    PS. And all of those other places you would be going, too!! heh

  2. I haven’t made my arrangements yet … still waiting to hear where all the cool kids, including you, are staying … be sure to keep me posted when you finalize your plans.
