A Unified Theory of Cats on the Internet (Stanford Briefs)
Friday, 24 July 2020

This book explores why cats became so prevalent as an Internet theme. As author Elyse White says, cats are everywhere from Reddit's slogan of "Come for the cats. Stay for the empathy" through the goth cats of Twitter and the glamourpusses of Instagram to the giddy, nonsensical silliness of Nyan Cat. Bringing together anecdotes, analyses, and hidden histories of the communities that built the internet, Elyse White shows how japonisme, punk culture, cute culture, and the battle among different communities for the soul of the internet informed the sensibility of online felines.
