LimeWire – The Used Condom Of The Internet | Lessons in Meme Culture

  1. This reminds me of how my friend was playing roms on his school laptop and when I asked him how to download it he sent me to a .exe website knowing full well it would give me a virus

  2. I could have been rich if it wasn't for LimeWire. I was an early YouTuber and most of my fellow teenagers in my town knew me and my then channel. When LimeWire broke my laptop I decided to stop making videos. Big mistake. My videos were popular and original. I could have become a top YouTuber before the site went truly mainstream in the 2010's.

  3. @2:28 "LimeWire performed an important service in the education of cyber-security"

    What? The same way Silvio Berlusconi performed a public service in the education about healthy democracies?

  4. Here in Latin America the main p2p virus downloading software of choice was Ares. I remember killing one or two computers because my 12 year old ass wanted to listen to some Linkin Park
