The ROFLcopter: Cleared for Landing.

March 23, 2007

Now, I’m admitedly behind on the latest geekspeak so the roflcopter may be old news to some of you.  But I just discovered it and it’s a perfect example of the silly, seemingly random stuff that makes me laugh.  Here’s some proper definitions of a roflcopter –

The roflcopter also a great example of the kinds of UGC (User Generated Crazes) that live, breathe and die on a daily basis all around the net.  This, combined with terms like pwned, 1337 and all the other geekspeak out there is forming the lexicon for the online community.  This is nothing new, it’s been happening for awhile now, but it will be interesting to see how far this goes, and how much staying power these terms have.  There’s a lot of rhetoric about the power of the e-people (or iPeople if you own a Mac, I guess), but the truth of the matter is simple – we’re closer to a UGC (User Generated Culture) every day.

Big props to JibJab’s own Dave Schappell for introducing me to the Roflcopter.
