After spending a night away from my home after being in Ann Arbor with friends, I came home to my father telling me I just had to see how much fatter Jonah Hill was from just a few months again. He had watched an episode of Saturday Night Live and forgot to DVR it so he went online and found the monologue of Hill’s performance on Hulu.com, a site for video sharing.
After watching that (and not laughing… wasn’t a good monologue at all. I would link it but it’s seriously not worth your time), I went on my computer to read up on the sport stories I missed over the night on a sports forum I usually browse. I came across a “thread” which redid all of the NFL football team logos. It was a really cool thing to see and it was extremely creative. The man who posted the thread in the NFL section was the creator of the blog and it was his way of putting his work out onto the internet.
Some samples of his work (link will be provided at the bottom)
Being exposed to this kind of stuff within the 15 minutes that I was home just made me realize more than ever just how crazy the world is today with sharing things on the internet. And the crazy amount of ways to do it. I an watch full episodes of Saturday Night Live from 2002 on Hulu if I really ever wanted to. I can find basically whatever I want on the internet by going on a forum and simple asking someone if they know where to find something and they will in a lot of cases be able to find it.
People have a place to share their work now on the internet with a place that they can keep track of and not lose track of where it is. And as the internet continues to develop, becoming a place where we can find just about anything we want now, we are seeing more and more users come to these places in hopes of finding things they are looking for. Message boards are filled with request sections where people ask for help in finding videos, pictures, posts or advice. The internet continues to grow and become a place to share more things than ever.
On many sites, there is a section where you can send your own comments or submit something for the site to post. For example, a website mocking Tim Tebow’s antics during football games where he drops to his knees and prays, began shortly after his career kick started and the site allowed viewers to submit their own photos that would be posted on the site upon a moderator review. The site thrives off the community and people sharing pictures of themselves “Tebowing” on the internet. People who submit these pictures now have given them a place to be found.
Sharing on the internet is only increasing as internet activity continues to increase. There are so many things to do on this online community.
Oh and yes, Jonah Hill is getting chubby… again. Here’s a picture!
