more media rabble

Another story from NPR; this one about viral internet media and its influence on culture. Gotta love the new demographic category... "the bored at work network." Are any of you in this cohort?

If you are, you can now do something productive and enter the contagious media showdown! Woohoo.

"You can never predict what millions of internet users around the world will all of a sudden go nuts for."

"Some things, like the dancing baby, just become kind of part of our shared lexicon..." Uh huh.

Links for some of these things are available at the NPR story site referenced above. My favorite one however, is not on that page despite its mention in the story. It is here.
