01 June 2010 My Religion
YouTube recently turned five. This is their story…
Maybe it’s just the super geek inside me, but watching that video sends shivers down my back. It’s hard to explain, but I think it makes me kind of proud. Not just to watch it, but to know I’ve been a part it (albeit in a very small manner).
There’s a couple of great videos from ROFLCon 2010 that got me thinking about this. Specifically the quote, “We may be on the forefront of Internet culture becoming the most dominent culture in the world” by Ben Huh, founder of I Can Has Cheezburger?.
When I think about the language, the symbols and even the values I use every single day, Internet culture is perhaps the most prevalent in my life. On any other day, I might even go as far as to say it’s my religion.
