Antoine Dodson spotted at ROFLcon practicing what he preaches… hiding
Last weekend, our co-founder Mallory and our designer Leia drove up to Boston to attend ROFLcon- the biennial convention for Internet memes held at the MIT campus. Friday and Saturday were filled with panels about all things Internet- from the future of the web to the nostalgia of geocities and angelfire.
Our favorite memes were present, and surprisingly… real people! Antoine Dodson hid in a trashcan, Old Spice guy skyped in topless, dude behind Double Rainbow spoke about his first video “One Huge Intense Rainbow”, 3frames creator Aaron Meyers spoke to the therapeutic value of gifs, Tron Guy gave hugs to the children, and our Google client gave testament to the fight for an open internet alongside Reddit’s Alexis Ohanian.
Sadly this was the final year of ROLFcon, but stay tuned for more adventures into the depths of the internet.
