HOPE Number Nine (2012): "'Kill The Internet'" (Download)

  • 099

Friday, July 13, 2012: 5:00 pm (Dennis): As grassroots Internet culture grows and flourishes, pushing out into international mainstream recognition, top-down cultural models are threatened and fight back, while governments attempt to quash and chill dissent empowered and organized by the Internet. How are people from the Internet fighting back? What does that even mean? And will it be enough?

MemeFactory is three guys that give tightly rehearsed performative lectures about Internet culture. Their talks document, explore, and critique the emerging culture of the Internet in a visually-focused, fast-paced style that mimics the experience of having ten browser windows open while talking on the phone and watching a YouTube video.

Hosted by MemeFactory (Mike Rugnetta, Stephen Bruckert, and Patrick Davison)
