Predictable, but on the mark.

I was going to write something about how “Internet culture” is incredibly immature, low-brow, and homophobic. Then I figured that it’s just a plain reflection of the personalities of the people on the Internet (or at least how they act when online).

Group mentality goes to a whole new level when you engage millions of people. Not a new thing mind you: that’s “culture” right? It just happens so quickly online. Internet “memes” can emerge overnight, but IRL “trends” are marked as seasonal, annual, or by decades.

(Hmmm… there are probably too many quotation marks in this post.)
