The Hierarchy Of Digital Distractions: levels of digital activity, visualized. (by David McCandless, via Scott Beale)
List of requirements (or at least, list of don’ts) for great memes:
1. Does not require a legend at the bottom to explain itself
2. Includes humor
3. Prints well on a standard, crappy work B&W laser printer
4. Consumes no more than 1/4 of a standard sheet of paper when printed
5. Does not use color gradients (see #3)
Otherwise, pretty spot on.
why isn’t reddit.com on there?!

Missing TV Tropes ruins this.

no mention of online videogames?
