Rocketboom, Meme Molly, Me, & Google+
I admit to having a total geeky girl crush on Meme Molly of Rocketboom. What is Rocketboom? It's a "three minute daily videoblog or Vlog based in New York City. We cover and create a wide range of information and commentary from top news stories to quirky internet culture. Instead of costing millions of dollars to produce, Rocketboom is created with a consumer-level video camera, a laptop, two lights and a map with no additional overhead or costs.”
This adorable English Internet Vlogging phenom & her perky gorgeousness explains in amusing & snarky pattois what's the lastest Meme and above...what Google Plus is all about & how it's different than The Twitters or The Facebooks. Fascinating history this Miss Molly Meme has...From the Wikipedias: "Molly started secretly making Youtube videos in her bedroom when she was 16 and eventually her parents found out about it. After a few years working independently in web video and a stint in Canada studying fine art, she went to New York to host, write and produce at Rocketboom. Also a YouTube partner, her mememolly[update] channel on YouTube is #50 on the all-time most-subscribed list for the U.K., with over 50 million views. She has cited lonelygirl15 as one of her inspirations to start making videos."
Of course it's terribly shamelessly self-serving of me to post this video and if I had any modesty whatsoever I would have refrained (thank goodness I'm not burdened with that particular trait)...let's just say this brilliant video gets flippin AWEsome at the 1:47 mark. Just sayin. [coughshameless!terrible!cough] But really? When EVER will I get such geeky street cred cool as to show up in a Meme Molly Rocketboom vid, after all? I mean...Pinch me!
Here's another cool way to explain the 3 different social media formats...don't quite know if I agree with it.
My favourite (natch!) is below!
Now....to quote Molly speak I'm terribly gobsmacked & chuffed & must go call my Mum & tell her!
WAIT! Eh, Wot? You want more Molly?
Related then to my previous post - Harry Potter and the Tearful Farewell --Here's Molly to give you the lowdown on my favourite Wizard!
