Cyber Rules Tip #512: How Food Goes Viral

The Darth Vader Burger is catching a lot of attention these days. Wasn't there once a time in history that voyagers risked life and limb to traverse stormy, monster-infested oceans to bring back flavorful spices to their Kings and Queens? Now, inventors are hard at work creating fleeting tastes that spark food addiction and toying with nature's original aesthetics to grab fame and publicity.

The food industry has an edge that other businesses cannot match: everybody has to eat. It's just a matter of getting them to eat your food. Quick, a Belgian fast food chain, is certain to get its share of attention as this latest stunt has gone viral. Enjoy your fame, Quick. And, um, those folks out there who will eat this...burger...well, you enjoy your meal, too.

Mad Rush of Year End/New Year

Happy New Year! Just a little personal message from me to anyone who happens across my humble little blog here. I haven't been posting much (well, even less than before) as various other projects in teaching and writing have kept my burners at a constant boil. If you've reached this page through JIG but have not yet seen William and Sly 2, then give it a look . . . you do not have to be someone who likes video games to like that one.

My resolution for 2012 is to find more interesting, worth-sharing bits and snips to post here and to actually get this blog thing going to be a place where for you to discover more eclectic stories and information, latest viral videos or memes, and such stuff.

All the best to you and yours in 2012,
