Out of touch with 4chan’s /b/ board? Lost in friendly conversations about LOLcats? Not in tune with your social circle’s references to online epherma? Join the New York Web Television Meetup, Tilzy.TV, Urlesque, and the Know Your Meme crew for some serious internet pop culture edification.
On Wednesday, July 22, at the lovely confines of DROM, Kenyatta Cheese, Elspeth Rountree, and Internet Scientist Jamie Wilkinson will put their meme-knowing-prowess to the test as Urlesque’s numba one stunna Kelly Reeves grills them on what makes internet phenomenons phenomenal. Discover how and why the trio of Rocketboom producers and technicians have been able to create a popular spin-off web series that (in many ways) is more successful than its progenitor.
Details below. We hope to see you there.

When: Wednesday, July 22, 2009 6:30 PM
