Chapter 4 - Lost Frog Flier
I have to briefly discuss the lost pet flier written by Terry, a 16-year-old autistic boy. I am amazed at how something as simple as that can create such a following. I never realized how simple something can be to be turned into a visual meme passed on from person to person. It even has a website! Of course I had to explore the website after reading about this. I can't believe how many people remixed the idea of the flier! The math test was the funniest to me. I can't believe that a lost frog flier can create such a hype! It just goes to show you that anything that you create can develop a following like the lost frog flier. You Tube is another great example of how ordinary people can become famous through collaboration and participation in the digital world. Anything is possible!
