I can haz Kittycat in your Journalizm. Katzencontent (via) bei spOn, gänzlich humorbefreit. Wer etwas wirklich lesenswertes haben will, bitteschön: eine wissenschaftliche Arbeit über Internet-Memes, voller LOLs und einem epischen Schlußwort. (via)

What is most important about all of the technologies that tie the internet together are the allowances they afford. Anyone with an internet connection can download a pirated copy of Photoshop, copy an image of a cat off of Google Image Search, overlay a funny line of text over it, post it to a free image hosting service, and then share their new LOLCat. The only prerequisite to viewing and participating in internet culture is a computer and a connection.

Der Lolinator kommt übrigens nicht von Techcrunch, wie man annehmen könnte, wenn man den spOn-Artikel liest, sondern von Malevolent, die auch schon diesen tollen Blindtext-Generator gemacht haben. Nutze ich schon seit Jahren, wer braucht Lorem Ipsum, wenn man sowas haben kann:

Knight Rider, a shadowy flight into the dangerous world of a man who does not exist. Michael Knight, a young loner on a crusade to champion the cause of the innocent, the helpless in a world of criminals who operate above the law.

Top Cat! The most effectual Top Cat! Who's intellectual close friends get to call him T.C., providing it's with dignity. Top Cat! The indisputable leader of the gang. He's the boss, he's a pip, he's the championship. He's the most tip top, Top Cat.

This is my boss, Jonathan Hart, a self-made millionaire, he's quite a guy. This is Mrs H., she's gorgeous, she's one lady who knows how to take care of herself. By the way, my name is Max. I take care of both of them, which ain't easy, 'cause when they met it was MURDER!
