  • 02/26/14--09:43: Which Character Are You?
  • About

    Which Character Are You? is a type of personality tests that are designed to match up the test-taker with a fictional character from a TV show, film or book by comparing their character traits through a series of multiple-choice questions. Originally found in teen and women’s magazines, the quizzes became popular online through the early social networking sites in the mid-2000s.

    Origin

    One of the earlest examples of a magazine based character quiz was a quiz titled ""Which Stooge Are You?"published in the February 1999 issue of Men’s Health magazine.[1] The first “Which Character Are You?” quiz to appear online was a thirteen question quiz titled “Which Mummy Character are you?” posted on SelectSmart[2] on July 15th, 2000, by user Slaygirl627.

    Spread

    Throughout the early to mid-2000s, a wide range of character personality quizzes were created by fans of TV shows and films on social blogging platforms like LiveJournal[11][12], MySpace and Xanga[13] using custom questionnaire generators like AlltheTests[3] and QuizRocket.[4] Buzzfeed posted one of its earliest quizzes on June 12th, 2009, titled “What Summer Song of 2009 Are You?”[5] The site created quizzes sporadically for the next few years, with its sudden boom in quiz content coming in late 2013. The quiz that started the push for more quizzes, according to Buzzfeed’s managing editorial director Summer Anne Burton, was "Which “Grease” Pink Lady Are You?" which was published on June 5th, 2013.[7][8]



    In February 2014, celebrities began taking quizzes for the shows they starred in and tweeting their results including Lena Dunham, Sarah Michelle, Jason Alexander.[9]

    Buzzfeed Quiz Backlash

    The sudden boom in Buzzfeed quizzes resulted in many parodies and thought pieces on their proliferation. On January 28th, 2014, Slate published a post titled “Which Buzzfeed Quiz Are You?”[10] The post copied Buzzfeed’s format and style, and each result links to a real Buzzfeed quiz. On February 25th, 2014, humor site Dorkly[6] also published a post titled, “What Buzzfeed Quiz Are You?” which contained purposefully dark or trivial fake Buzzfeed quiz titles like “Which Girls Character Can You Remember the Name Of?” and "What Character From “Freinds” Who Was Also a Monkey Are You?"

    “The idea is to fill facebook with X” is a copypasta, that originated from:

    “The idea is to occupy Facebook with art, breaking the monotony of photos of lunch, sushi and sports.
    Whoever likes this post will receive an artist and has to publish a piece by that artist with this text.”

  • 02/27/14--09:24: IRC traps
  • IRC is a classic protocol for online chatting. As such, there has been a lot of people using it over the years, some of which don’t agree with each other. As such some users have pranked others by fooling them into executing undesired commands.

    Some examples of commands include tempting people to join the channel zero. This is an obscure feature of the IRC protocol and means to part from all the channels. This is often hidden by exploiting the fact that the join command can join several channels at the same time when they are separated by a comma and that servers frequently treat several zeros the same as just one. This leads to bogus channel names like #1,000.

    Another common prank is asking a question about two people on a boat:

    Two people are on a boat, /part and /quit. /part fell overboard, who is left in the boat?

    This suggests people to enter the command to quit their IRC client when trying to answer. The fact that it is commonly possible to bypass the command parsing and send the correct answer is sometimes used to show that it is safe to answer the question.

  • About

    LinkedIn is a social media network site founded by Reid Hoffman created for professionals to connect with current and former colleagues. The site also allows users to host and maintain a resume.

    History

    The site was founded in 2002 and launched in 2003 by Hoffman about six months after he organized a group of workers.[1] Many of the people who were behind the launch were people he had worked with at money-transferring service PayPal[2] and SocialNet. After their first month of operation they had over 4,000 members. In 2005 the company began selling subscriptions that would allow members to send messages to other LinkedIn members they didn’t know.[3] They also launched their job board that year.

    2012 Account Hacking

    On June 4th, 2012, Russian hackers were able to obtain over 6.4 millions passwords from LinkedIn members.[14] Because of LinkedIn’s reputation as a very professional, and thus uninteresting social platform, many took to Twitter to make light of the hacking. On June 7th, several guides were published to check if your password was among the stolen on sites like Venture Beat[15] and The Huffington Post.[16]

    Features

    • Members can send invites to connect to current and former colleges
    • Member pages allow users to build and host their resume, including endorsements from current and former employees
    • Members with premium subscriptions may send messages to members they are not connected with
    • Members may endorse other member’s in skill areas relevant to their profession
    • Members can search for others by name or company

    Userbase

    As of February 2014, LinkedIn has more than 277 million registered members.[4] Only 34% of its members are based in the United States. The fastest growing demographic on LinkedIn is recent college graduates.

    Highlights

    Bang with Professionals

    On February 1st, 2013, the site Bang With Professionals was launched.[12] The site allowed users to connect through their LinkedIn network, then label co-workers they’d like to hook-up with “would bang.”[13] When two people labeled each other as would bang the site would e-mail them the news. The founders explained their site saying:

    ""We obviously saw what others were doing," the site’s anonymous founders said in reference to communities like Grindr and Blendr, “but it was hard for us to think of really hooking up with someone using their services. In our opinion a network such as LinkedIn might be a good place to look when trying to hook up with someone. After all, you spend most of your time at work, so chances are finding someone to hook up with used on your LinkedIn profile might be a good place to start.”


    The site was shut down less than two weeks later on February 11th, after LinkedIn’s API key was revoked.[11]

    Pope Job Listing

    On March 12th, 2013, a job posting for the Pope appeared on LinkedIn, as a joking reaction to Pope Benedict stepping down from copywriter William Grave.[18] The listing was removed soon after it was posted, but at least 30 applications for the position were sent.[17]



    Cleveland Woman’s Rude Reply Goes Viral

    On February 19th, 2004, Diana Mekota, a twenty-six-year-old job searcher sent a LinkedIn request to Kelly Blazek, who is in charge of an online job board for marketers living in Cleveland, Ohio.[5] Mekota received an angry e-mail in response, which expressed frustration that Mekota would try to connect with her without knowing her. She said,

    ""Your invite to connect is inappropriate, beneficial only to you, and tacky.Wow, I cannot wait to let every 26-year-old jobseeker mine my top-tier marketing connections to help them land a job. I love the sense of entitlement in your generation.You’re welcome for your humility lesson for the year. Don’t ever reach out to senior practitioners again and assume their carefully curated list of connections is available to you, just because you want to build your network."


    Mekota posted the entire message on Imgur[6] on February 19th with the caption:

    “Moving to a new area so I attempted to join her job board and followed it up with a LinkedIn invite. This was the email response I received. Guess us twenty somethings should bow down to senior professionals because clearly we have nothing to offer.
    Just like to point out that her LinkedIn page reads: “Frequent speaker on creating a gamechanger resume, professional presence, and how LinkedIn is a critical element of any job search.”


    Mekota also posted her original message in which she asked to join Blazek’s job board to Imgur[7] on February 25th. The message briefly outlined her education and previous positions.

    The e-mail was posted on Buzzfeed[8] on February 20th, which noted that Blazek had been named “2013 Communicator of the Year” by the Cleveland Chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators.

    The hashtag #blazek topped Twitter’s trending topics list on February 25th, with many using the hashtag to condemn Blazek for her harsh words.[9]

    That same day Blazek sent a letter of apology to Mokota and The Plain Dealer, an Ohio newspaper.[10] In the e-mail she explained she had become frustrated with how many job seekers sought her help every day, and that led her to be short with Mekota. She went on to say:

    “The note I sent to Diana was rude, unwelcoming, unprofessional and wrong. I am reaching out to her to apologize. Diana and her generation are the future of this city. I wish her all the best in landing a job in this great town.”

  • 02/28/14--15:33: Normcore
  • About

    Normcore is a humorous fashion trend in which artists and others associated with the “hipster” subculture emulate Middle Americans by wearing ordinary clothing with dull or muted colors.

    Origin

    On October 19th, 2013, the trend forecasting group K-Hole[1] published a trend report titled “Youth Mode: A Report on Freedom,”[2] which proposed a new emergent aesthetic titled “#Normcore” encompassing a functional, comfortable fashion style and an attitude that embraces sameness rather than individuality.



    Spread

    On October 25th, 2013, the pop culture blog Bullett Media[7] published an interview with several K-Hole collective members, who shared their thoughts on what it means to be “normcore.”

    “Obviously self-image has always been a more distant, maneuverable extension of the self, but the Internet gives us total freedom to disengage the two. At the end of the day, we’re still ourselves. The blankness of Normcore deemphasizes self-image to promote a more fluid sense of self. It allows you to experience more things, both on and offline.”

    On February 24th, 2014, NY Mag[3] published an article about the emerging fashion trend, which referred to the style as “mall clothes,” “blank clothes” and a “dad-brand non-style you might have once associated with Jerry Seinfeld.” On February 26th, writer Tavi Gevinson posted a tweet joking that normcore should be a nudist movement.




    On February 26th, That same day, Gothamist[6] published an article highlighting photographs of several tongue-in-cheek examples of normcore fashion (shown below).



    On February 27th, GQ[5] published a list of “10 #Normcore Essentials Every Man Should Have,” including Costco white T-shirts, stonewashed jeans, Patagonia fleece jackets and white tube socks, Teva sandals and New Balance sneakers.



    The same day, several other news sites reported on the trend, including Flavorwire,[8] Styleite,[9] The Guardian,[10] Jezebel,[11] Gawker[12] and The Daily Dot.[13] Also on February 27th, the Twitter feed of the clothing retailer Gap posted a tweet that they had been stocking “#normcore” clothing for the past several decades. According to the Twitter analytics site Topsy,[14] there were over 2,600 tweets containing the hashtag “#normcore” that month.

    About

    Warning this part of the entry contains some spoilers about the comics plot.

    whilst the comic itself doesn’t have a clear story it is mostly about a group of thermo-nuclear survivors which consists of four people

    The captain: The leader of the team that appears to have the lowest sanity of the group, his adventures consist of usually nonsensical shenanigans which at one point included him drinking a black hole. The captains past is not shown a lot and is possibly the one that has the little past of his shown. He is also well known to hold a mug with a red love heart on it which later is shown in the story is making a plot to kill him.

    Snippy: Charles Snippy is one of the more saner characters of the four and is the only known character that wasn’t connected to ANNET (this universes internet provider). His adventures with the captain usually end him up either being killed or getting close to death. Before the apocalypse he was an average employee in a corporation but his past in his corporation is not shown much in the comic except for the fact that he got a side job and a tour-man in the nearby wasteland.

    Pilot: The other insane character of the four who follows the captains every order as he sees the captain as a form of ‘miracle maker’ who which he also fears as shown in one of comics pages he says that if they disobey the captain they will be splashed with boiling hot water. The pilots past appears to be that of a Hitman/assassin he also appears to be another ANNET user (as ANNET was used by 99% of the population). He has a signature weapon of a katana (which is broken in a part of the comic)

    Engie: The only other main character that is also sane character. Alexander Gromov was a head engineer of a ANNET and also appears to be the machines lover as well as it says to him (in page 65) “I love you”. His personality consists of not being a courageous man as when he leaves his bunker he sees a large mass (known as “cancer”) and quickly runs to hide from it. He also appears to be an intelligent man as he knows more about the termo-nuclear war than any other of the gang

    Whilst the time of where the comic started to spread is a mystery it has spread in not only how long the comic is but also its user base as multiple users have criticised and praised the comic for its art style and humour .
