can anyone keep up with the internet?

Someone just sent me the Where the Hell is Matt? video. Matt is a guy who, courtesy of Stride gum, traveled all over the world doing “his” dance on video. It’s yet another submission in a long line of viral videos.

It’s apparently been around for a few years, but I’d never heard of it. Which takes me back to the “man, how uncool am I” soul-searching.

Since I’m way behind the curve on this one, I’m trying to figure if it is at all possible to keep up with the Internet.

Is it possible that anyone is on the cutting edge of every video, site or song fad happening on the Internet? Has the Internet actually leveled the “cool” playing field? If everyone misses some “cool” thing happening on the Internet, doesn’t that make us all, essentially, uncool (or cool, in absence of uncool)?

Anyway, if you haven’t seen this, you are less cool than me – so how does THAT make you feel?

    That was many shades of awesome. Thanks for sharing. I was uncooler than you.

    just make sure you read a couple aggregators religiously and you’ll never miss anything as banal and pervasive as the stride gum dude. try digg, reddit, metafilter, del.icio.us. Warning though, it is extremely addicting. pick a half hour of your day to waste keeping up with the net and try not to over do it.
