Tech Douchebags #50: The Parody Account Creator

March 8, 2015 at 2:45PM • 45 minutes

In this week’s meeting, Kyle Seth Gray shares his addiction to creating parody accounts on Twitter, how he get bored with them very quickly even though he's on Twitter nearly all the time, how he's "too cool" for old news and the many ways he's a stereotypical self-centered oversharing millenial.

In addition, we discuss meme culture, the life cycle of an internet trend, how algorithms affect the flow of news to different people, Twitter focusing more now on the consumer than the creator, and how "normal" people just want approval online from their real-life friends and not random strangers.

It concludes with Kyle committing to step seven by agreeing to delete all the parody Twitter accounts he is no longer tweeting from and has left abandoned.

Hosted by Jordan Cooper.

Getting There #30: Stereotypical Millennials

March 6, 2015 at 5:15PM • 1 hour 8 minutes

In which we discuss the how boredom can be mistaken for laziness, how we have to specify what exactly our generation feels entitled to before we can deny that we’re entitled, how we may have some delusions about the "real world" (but there are some reasons why we got there), how we might have some anger issues, why none of us want to live with our parents, and why hook-up culture ain't the worst thing in the world. Oh, and brogrammers and Mario Kart and Mario Kart and Mario Kart. Those too.

Hosted by Liz Furl & Sara Stewart.
