Aan het lezen – en gezien we ziek thuiszitten is daar tijd voor:

Oh Myyy! (There Goes The Internet) – George Takei

“How did a 75-year old actor from Star Trek become a social media juggernaut? Why does everything he posts spread like wildfire across the ether, with tens or even hundreds of thousands of likes and shares? And what can other sites, celebrities and companies do to attain his stratospheric engagement levels, which hover or top 100 percent while theirs languish in the single digits? 
Read about George Takei’s meteoric rise and dominance of the Internet in Oh Myyy (There Goes the Internet), published of course in electronic format.In this groundbreaking, hilarious and informative book, Takei recounts his experiences on platforms such as Twitter, YouTube and Facebook, where fans and pundits alike have crowned him King. He muses about everything from the nature of viral sharing, to the taming of Internet trolls, to why Yoda, bacon and cats are such popular memes. Takei isn’t afraid to tell it likes he sees it, and to engage the reader just as he does his legions of fans.
Both provokingly thoughtful and wickedly funny, Oh Myyy! captures and comments upon the quirky nature of our plugged-in culture. With Takei’s conversational yet authoritative style, peppered with some of his favorite images from the web, readers should be prepared to LOL, even as they can’t help but hear his words in their heads in that unmistakable, deep bass.”

Beetje vreemde keuze voor iemand die geen enkele Star Wars en ooit misschien een paar Star Treks heeft gezien. Ik ben niet dol op dat soort films/series. Maar ik zit me wel te amuseren met dat boekje. Grappige mens, zowaar. Geen literatuur om je een breuk aan te tillen, maar ideaal voor 38°C koorts.

Ook net gelezen op het web: 

Verloren gelopen Russen

Ik denk dat ik nog wat op die website van het Smithsonian ga blijven hangen, het ziet er daar interessant uit.
