Merry Christmas From the One Guy at ifnormation

While everyone is out there making memes, downloading torrents, digital activism-ing, copyfighting, etc., etc. I think it’s easy to lose sight of one of the minor victories social media and the internet has brought us: The democratization of the Yule Log.

What first was once a tool of bourgeoisie dominance is now free! Finally, comrades, our fake Christmas fires have been snatched from the hands of the Capitalist pig dogs! Viva la Yule Log! Viva la revolucion!

But, really, what started as a Christmas tradition at WPIX in New York has garnered enough fandom for enthusiasts to sit in front of their fireplace with a camera. To novices, this might make the internet sound like a strange place. You ain’t seen nothing yet. For internet veterans, this should come as no surprise.

Merry Christmas. And I leave you with this fine, fine example of internet Yule Log technology.
