DailyDirt: Viral Videos Spreading Everywhere

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

There was a time when it was possible to keep track of popular internet memes, but there's a countless number (maybe some neural net behind youtube has a tally while it's not trying to recognize cat videos) being created all the time now. Some marketing folks are trying to mimic viral videos and engineer their own, and it'll probably get harder and harder to spot the fake memes. ICYMI, here are a few links on viral videos of varying seriousness. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.

    I try to watch a few minutes of The Pirate Cinema every day. Can't remember where I first heard of it, so I'll assume it was right here at TD (not the Doctorow novel, btw).

    Not the most soothing thing in the world, but still more fun than trying to listen to Girl Talk's Secret Diary.

    Many 'talk radio' shows put out a video version as well. Hopefully Techdirt's Podcasts will also do video sometime.
