This video is climbing the charts fast at Youtube. It was put together to promote Social Media Week.

We always think of the Internet, social media, and memes as the domain of the young. But, everybody gets old.

What kind of conversations will we have when we are old about cat videos, Anonymous, ragefaces, and general lulz? And, what will replace all that? Remember Digg? Myspace? Prodigy?

Each generation is so cutting edge. But, eventually, the next media format comes along. Boundaries get pushed. Previous ways to measure popularity pale in comparison to current ways.

But, for now, we can laugh at the concept of aging hipsters.
