That can only meme on thing

The new distributed network paradigm has become apparent in large businesses. Large office work forces have been utilizing new networking programs to connect on the job. Facebook is being used socially and professionally, blurring the two worlds together. Some companies are creating their own platform for employees to use.
‘Sametime’ is like a
half-way house between phone – which is disruptive – and email – which is
too passive.
-Interviewee, large professional services firm
New technology has the capacity to facilitate the connections in a distributed network of employees.

TFW you realize, we’re all citizen journalists.

Sudden Clarity Clarence

This Clarity Clarence meme was my exact face in the week 8 lecture when BCM112 Lecturer Ted Mitew told us the “We are all citizen journalists”

This meme is simply a representation of this realization.

Of course there are lots of issues surrounding citizen journalism but the first is accepting the fact that we all have the opportunity and means to participate in citizen journalism.

YouTube Empowerment: Good Luck

It can be hard to make funny or original video content. YouTube has over 1 Billion users, which is a lot of competition considering that’s almost 1/7th of the worlds population.

HowToBasic is the most subscribed to channel in Australia. This prospect could be daunting if you’ve even seen HowToBasic’s videos. They are very funny and strangely original.

My Neverland meme expresses the disillusionment of new YouTubers who inevitably feel the daunting pressure of the billion competitors.

Even if your work is funny, entertaining or original, the chances of people actually seeing it and subscribing to your channel.

One day you’ll make it with a lot if hard work, dedication and a lot of luck

Batman v Superman: Transmedia fight of the century

This meme is not a lulz meme. It is an example of Transmedia narratives.

DC’s Superman and Batman narratives have existed in multiple mediums for years now. There are comics, tv shows, video games, and even graphic novels about both characters individually. Batman and Superman have appeared together in Superman/Batman comics, in the animated tv shows and even in Injustice: Gods among us.

In 2016 Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be released and the stories of Batman, Superman and Batman/Superman will be expanded in a Transmedia narrative. Spreading the story across a new medium.
