Yes, it’s true: Storm started the #wookieleaks / #wookieeleaks hashtag meme that smoldered on and on like the Centralia Underground Coal Fire. It’s frankly a bit mind-blowing how far it’s spread. Here’s a sampling:
- Wired.com e-mail interview with Storm from Wednesday about how he thought of it and spread it, with the help of @shanenickerson
- NPR article and interview with Michele Norris, as heard on All Things Considered
- MSNBC article
- AOL News article
- New York Daily News
- The Atlantic says “Perhaps the best hashtag ever” (guess who’s gonna get a Sugarberry canned ham from us this Thanksgiving)
So special thanks to Shane Nickerson (@shanenickerson) for helping get the ball rolling early on. And, of course, to Chewbacca. What a Wookiee!
Now where’s our sitcom deal?
