It's the culture Through various lucky accidents, cat stuff started to permeate Internet culture pretty early on, and dogs often found themselves imitating rather than innovating in the field.
(and yes, sure, 4chan, etc., but let's try to stay focused) certainly has an important role to play in this story, with the introduction to the wider Web of those semi-literate feline sensations the LOLcats, who at this point even your mom has heard of.
And while Happy Cat — of whom your mom is also, arguably, at least tangentially aware — is still the most popular image on Cheezburger, according to the site's Editor in Chief, Emily Huh, the most popular post on sister (dog-themed) site I Has A Hot Dog has nowhere near the same traction, either in terms of Facebook shares or in the annals of Internet culture as a whole.
The joke that you tell about how the Internet is a waste of time if you are the kind of person who makes jokes about how the Internet is a waste of time is always something like, "The only thing the Internet is good for is cat videos and pornography." And I don't think it is being pedantic to point out that this particular line doesn't work if you substitute "dog videos." People would think you are weird.
They would be like, "Why are you watching dog videos? But so — and I will try to look at some actual statistics as we get more into it — but this brings me to my first tentative answer to the "Cats On The Internet" question (which, I should also point out, is a question that people ask a lot.) 1.
Everyone was watching, sharing and talking about the clip, asking themselves and each other if this could possibly be for real.
Of course, closer examination of the video and You Tube account proved that it was definitely not real—in the video she calls herself Debbie and the name on her You Tube account is Cara Hartmann. Megan O’Neill is the resident web video enthusiast here at Social Times.
The Verge received confirmation from You Tube that it is NOT changing its logo.
“Our main logo is a core part of You Tube and is not going away. It’s fine and much less annoying than most of the start-ups that went on to dominate the internet (i.e., Pay Pal, e Bay, Google, etc.) so I have no qualms in seeing it go away.
She ecstatically agreed to do a little interview with me (well, happily at least) so here goes!
Firstly, did you ever secretly want to make out with me behind the stairs on the third floor of the art building at 3PM? I secretly/not so secretly wanted to make out with any boy as long as they brought me 3 or more chocolate chip cookies from that snack stand in the cafeteria. If I knew, I would have pumped you full of more cookies, mediocre mozzarella sticks and shit personal pan pizzas than you could have ever handled!
That being said, a surprising number of people are still talking about the video as if it was the real deal. Megan covers everything from the latest viral videos to online video news and tips, and has a passion for bizarre, original and revolutionary content and ideas.
Today, we have an extra special interview on The World or Bust with none other than, thee “Debbie” aka Cara Hartman (or vice versa), the viral You Tube sensation behind “e Harmony Video Bio”. Not only does her video have over 25 M views, but Cara and I actually went to the same high school together, Lower Merion, just outside of Philly.
The typography is unassuming and appropriately playing a supporting role.
