There are "classic" films and "classic" books but what about the Internet classics? Why don't we talk about and pass down the quintessential tweets, Reddit posts, YouTube videos, GIFs, and blog posts like we do with more traditional mediums? And what even are the Interent classics that every enterprising young person should know about as they come of age?
Actually, I'm not so interested in what they are as much as why we don't appreciate "classics" on the Internet like we do with books, TV, and films?
I think it's a reflection of our incessant obsession with the "new" — something @Ev hopes to tackle with Medium — as well as an opportunity, of some sort, for an entrepreneur or archivist out there... though I'm curious what you think?
