Back in April 2008, we put on the original ROFLCon — the first internet culture conference devoted to discussing what makes memes work, why they work, and where its all going (and then throwing a big-ass rocking party with the internet celebs themselves). It was a kickass time, not to mention the most important gatherings since the fall of the tower of Babel.
We figured we’d keep doing this as long as it remains awesome (and it still is), so we’ve put together several more internet culture events. Will we ever stop? WHO KNOWS?
I’m hugely excited today to announce that ROFLCon III has been officially sponsored by top internet smartypants headquarters the Berkman Center for Internet and Society!
In addition to providing a rich source of many of our most badass moderators and presenters throughout the years, like Ethan Zuckerman (and more to be announced!), the Berkman Center backed us all the way along our early fumblings getting things together in 2008
So, needless to say, we’re excited to have them aboard for this third installment in our trilogy of ROFLs as we get into our pimply awkward adolescence as a conference.
If you’re not familiar with Berkman, you may be interested in the massive library of research that they’ve generated on all aspects of web and policy. They’re also involved, fantastically enough, in the upcoming launch of Lady Gaga’s nonprofit
In any case, excited to have them aboard once again!
