At the recommendation of Miss Cellania, we learn that there is much more to Hampsterdance than we had otherwise appreciated. With memes and virality, we’re all audience and authors both but the quirky little website that seeded internet culture and its norms of communication has a specific attribution. CBC Arts correspondent Leah Collins plums the midst of time and takes us back to 1998, to a world before social media when GeoCities and personal and prestige websites dominated and gives us an anecdotal and oral history of the project and its unexpected legacy.
