One of the best things about ROFLcon is trying to find ways to hack, heckle, and celebrate the lolz of internet culture. And no ROFLcon is complete without some meme-related project.
With the recent surge of memes generated on memegenerator.net, there is a large number emerging memes based around this simple tool. The application of Moore’s Law to memes states that the progress of creation of memes will become quicker over time. Meme Generator Surge allows the creation of new memes by adding crazy amounts of new meme images to their site, all from a single script, reaching the God Tier in no time!
Go grab the code, run it from your computer, and make yourself a forced meme expert.
Code available at github.com/gleuch/meme-generator-surge

Updated 12/12/2010: Support added for tweeting files in Base64 encoded and plain text methods!
The F.A.T. Lab crew have begun the Twitter seeding – with movies, images, code, and other items of copyright or intellectual property. We’ve started with code, music, and movies… but we need your help to seed more files to Twitter!
So why is filesharing on Twitter important to FAT Lab? Governments and private organizations continue to lock down legitimate file sharing through raids, law suits, and “consumer protection” laws & treaties. And while larger file sharing arenas are targeted, many forget file sharing has existed across many different mediums for decades. Early filesharing beginning with Usenet groups, where the binary data was converted to text characters and reprocessed for download. Facsimile machines follow a similar method of dissemination of binary data. And even ham radio used teletype to transmit photos across long distances by converting photos to ASCII before transmission.
If Twitter is today’s Usenet and Usenet was used for file sharing years ago, why shouldn’t Twitter be utilized today for file sharing?
