This is why tumblr rocks. Well, one of the many reasons.
In addition to Academic Tim Gunn, I’m also a fan of Rhet.Comp Ryan Gosling.

This is pretty funny. I felt the same way when my friend’s mom ended up getting facebook just to friend all of her son’s friends and talk with us.

So the idea of Tim Gunn talking about the digital humanities is like a parent entering your online space? I get it, but just wanted to clarify. And is that what makes it funny…two disparate things in one image? 🙂

I don’t even care if a parent is on Facebook. It’s when they are there for no other reason than to try to connect to something just to stay hip. Think of it like a parent going to a party and waving at all of my friends

This just reminds me of more ways that the digital humanities is expanding every day. There are so many new places for people in our major and profession to expand in because technology is always growing and that means we always have to grow with it too. Sounds like fun to me!

There can’t be anything more popular in the blogosphere than memes. I know people where all they do, all day, is look at memes. I personally enjoy “First World Problems.”
As to this particular meme, I think it does a great job at capturing the differences in generations and how they use social media and the Digital Humanities.

I’m also a fan of First World Problems and am directing a thesis about memes as rhetorical humor. i’ll try to have my student come visit class to talk about her project!

I like this pic. I see so many people who think things like that.
