I’m a bad millennial. I don’t like avocado toast (or avocados in general). I pay for a monthly cable subscription. I’ve never once posted an Instagram Story. But of all the millennial crazes, the thing that makes me feel oldest is the ubiquity of memes. For geezers like me who don’t really “get” it… I’ve gleaned that memes are really just shared jokes on the internet, usually involving superimposing a caption onto a viral-worthy image or video.
Happy final two weeks till Santa’s big journey! I hope your last second shopping goes well. Maybe you’ll find what you need at JC Penney!?!?!
LOLZ! Let’s get started with this week’s Welcome to the InterNEAT selection!
5. It’s …
We’re so excited to have Alex Cadice rounding up the most entertaining online items each week in InterNEAT—so excited in fact, that we decided to do a roundup of our own.
Here are our staffer’s favorite Internet animals! (Click the images to visit the site they came from. We can’t post all the good ones here, but we can link you to them for hours of entertainment.)
The world that we live in today is often referred to as “The Information Era.” Just 50 years ago the first computers were the size of a house, phones were attached by cords, and mail was written by hand. With technology advancing so rapidly, it’s crazy to think about all the technological breakthroughs I have experienced. I remember being introduced to dial-up internet, to my dad’s sweet car phone that was the size of a brick, and to Gameboy’s that allowed me to take my video games everywhere. Now we have laptops, iPads, iPods, smart phones, and thank god, the internet. It’s amazing how far technology has come. According to inventor and author, Ray Kurzweil, “A kid in Africa with a smart phone has more access to information than the U.S. president had 15 years ago.” To save you a Google search, that president was Bill Clinton. And if smart phones were around back then, we probably would of found out about Monica Lewinsky a lot sooner.
