Stop the presses! We’re announcing one final panelist for World’s Fair Use Day: the one, the only, Kenyatta Cheese. If you know a thing or two about Internet memes and web culture, you’ve likely seen “Know Your Meme,” the groundbreaking meme database that he co-created and hosted; if you don’t, you’re about to get taken to school.
Kenyatta Cheese researches and fosters media culture and technology. He is probably best known for co-creating the web series and internet meme database Know Your Meme, often cited as the go to resource for understanding web culture. Kenyatta is often called upon to comment on the state and meaning of internet culture by the likes of NPR, MSNBC, The New York Times, and the parents of close friends. In previous iterations he has worked with the Eyebeam Center for Art and Technology, Manhattan Neighborhood Network, and the online television network Rocketboom.
