A (Historical) Moment Like This

edited August 2007 in Social Entropy++
http://lukeprog.com/52-influential-photographs/

So this site shows a bunch (52, to be exact) of famous photos in history, and a brief explanation on why they were so important. A lot are easily recognizable, and the rest are pretty interesting to look at for the first time.

Then you scroll down to two out of the last three, which contain SE++ Hall of Fame entrants
goatse and lolcats

Will future generations treasure those two as our generation does?



And lets see some photos that hold special meaning in your life. Particularly, of your mom.


NOTE: the website is getting slammed, but you can see it after a while.

    Unknown - Goatse (2002)
    The shocking photo at the entrance to shock site Goatse.cx became emblematic of the Internet underground and the revolution against corporate control enabled by the democratization of the Internet.


    Various - Abu Ghraib Prison Photos (2004)
    Several series of photos depict torture, humiliation, and sexual abuse of Iraqi prisoners by U.S. soldiers in Abu Ghraib, sparking protests.


    Unknown - I Can Has Cheezburger? (2006)
    This captioned photo of a cute cat launched an online fad.

    Ranked in order of importance, not by date.

    Is this serious? I'm pretty sure it was just a shock site with no special message. D:

    We're not all Goatseologists. We need to get the experts in here, like Quetzi or K_a.

    Goatse is an expression of the most animal instincts of humans. While many find it hard to look at, when you really stare at it you can see the message that it is trying to get across: discard your taboos and sexual repression and enjoy a new century of freedom.
