kenyatta came up with the idea of Know Your Meme last year. When he told me about it, I didn't realize the importance of having a show like Know Your Meme - a show that just reports on Memes with a "scientific" approach .
What I think makes Know Your Meme stand out is the insightful writing and damn good research.
I love that kenyatta writes the scripts in a way that do not give simple answers for why something becomes a meme. Chris conducts AMAZINGly thorough research - they don't these kind of research skills in school. Then kenyatta frame it in the larger context of internet culture. The the kenyatta magic is the best at the end of the meme video - where he gives the macro perspective of the sociologically meaning of the meme.
After a few months past their start up period - I feel that Know Your Meme has finally found its rhythm and knows to work with their resources.
And of course the writing wouldn't matter if there wasn't such a great crew, a great researcher like chris, great editors and a great company to build off of - rocketboom!
Here are some of my favorites since they started last year. Check it out and add this to your RSS feed!
