ROFLThing NYC, Internet Memes Invade Manhattan


They guys who organized last year’s amazing meme exploration conference ROFLCon in Cambridge and the follow-up event ROFLThing in San Francisco, are now doing ROFLThing NYC on January 24th at Santos Party House in Manhattan.

ROFLThing features talks by Charlie Todd (Improv Everywhere), Troy Hitch & Matt Bledsoe (the creators of You Suck At Photoshop), Jason Scott, Bre Pettis, Alexis Ohanian (co-founder of Reddit), Jim Louderback (CEO of Revision3), Vincent Connare (creator of the Comic Sans font) and many more. Registration is now open.

I’ll be attending the event and Laughing Squid is one of the sponsors of the event. While we are in town we’ll be organizing a Laughing Squid NYC Drinkup on January 22nd.
