Humour on the Web

More than anywhere else, humour on the Web is constructed socially: an initial utterance is responded to, and so on in a chain that builds up the joke.

Witness Slashdot for some hilarious commenting activity where the initial article, the seed information, only serves to elicit the responses from the community. Responses are typically orthogonal to the original article and experienced commenters answer each other, building up the humorous threads of response.

The Great Copyright Holder

- A little light reading huh.
- Yeah, just some bathroom reading, replies the man matter of factly, trying to be funny in the shortest sentence.
- Wow, you must be full of shit then!

You know you're an infojunkie if...

10. The main intellectual activity of your childhood consisted of making lists, from airplane models to French words of Arabic origin and vice-versa.
9. Your parents took you in their Trivial Pursuit team, encouraging you to memorize all the cards.
8. Your high school teachers gave you books that you keep rediscovering every decade.
7. Now that you've grown up, your innocent list-making has turned into an addiction for collections: music, books, films, whatever can be acquired into a hierarchy of categories.

Number systems


" A binary digit is a bit,
a ternary digit a tit!
- Oh, quit it."
