Meme Hunters – Join the Clan

I’ve recently created a facebook page called, Meme Hunters: Who Thinks They Can Win the Internet?

The tentative idea is to have a huge cross-section of internet people contributing viral material to the page, as a way to both draw attention to their respective websites, but also as a way to really determine who has the internet inside dope. Ideally, I’d like to link some classic meme-droppers to the side bar like BoingBoing, LaughingSquid, various Redditors, etc.

Obviously, I can’t create this community alone. I would really appreciate your help in getting out the word to the super-serious-Hall-of-Fame-caliber internet junkies out there. Let’s see how amazing this page can be.
