RumorMiller.com recognizes Drew Curtis for an Internet First: Getting all users of a social media website to agree with each other
November 09, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsNewYork, NY: Social media pioneer Rumormiller.com recognized internet pioneer Drew Curtis, founder of Fark.com, for meeting RumorMiller.com's most difficult challenge: getting 3 million users of a website to agree with each other. Rumormiller.com issued the challenge on November 2nd to illustrate the diversity of the internet.
Fark.com Founder Drew Curtis won the challenge on the same day by posting a message chastising "The Daily Show's" Jon Stewart for failing to acknowledge the large online community that made Jon Stewarts's recent Rally to Restore Sanity a success. Within a few moments all 3 million users of Fark.com AGREED with each other that Drew Curtis was wrong to have posted anything on the topic. 3 million users all screaming in unison. In recognition of this stunning achievement RumorMiller.com is awarding $400.00 to fund math lessons for students in KY through the charity site: DonorsChoice.org. In keeping with the nature of the sites the donation was made in honor of: "Drew Curtis of Fark.com, teh winnar of teh internets" [sic].
RumorMiller.com spokesperson Lindsay McGuire underscored the significance of the award, "The internet represents the diversity of all humanity. In today's hyperpartisan world getting 90 percent of a giant site like fark.com to agree on anything is monumental in scope and represents an achievement just as important and difficult as landing a man on the moon. I remind you on these sites we cannot even agree that we landed on the moon."
