Why do we fight with strangers on the internet?
A picture worth a thousand words, a multicultural reference with several layers of meaning, a sticker that condenses a complex sensation. It is a meme, that minimum unit of meaning that is central to any digital conversation today. Why do we adopt it? When did its use explode?
It is what Clarissa Herrera talked in this episode with Federico “Chueco” Albarracín, meme curator from Córdoba; Silvia Lago Martinez, co-director of the Information Society Study Program at the Gino Germani Institute (UBA); Ezequiel Vila, who writes about video games and defines himself as a “meme trader”; Y Facundo Bianco, Director of Communication at Faro Digital.
