The unforgettable gaming memes of the 2000s

We're exploring the pop culture that shaped us at the turn of the millennium, and examining what the films, shows, and games from the era say about us then and now. It's a little #tbt to the days before #tbt was a thing. The 2000s were the most formative years for memes as internet accessibility and popularity surged, and gamers were one the main torchbearers. Some of the biggest memes of all time came from video games and players in the 2000s, aided by highly trafficked forums and the introduction of YouTube to turn what would normally be small moments in pop culture into virtual wildfires. In celebration of the aughts, we collected a handful of our favorite and most impactful gaming memes from that decade, taking a trip down memory to a time when the internet wasn't quite so dominated by the social media empires we see today.


Explained: Why it is becoming more difficult to detect deepfake videos and what are the implications

Doctored videos or deepfakes have been one of the key weapons used in propaganda battles for quite some time now. Donald Trump taunting Belgium for remaining in the Paris climate agreement, David Beckham speaking fluently in nine languages, Mao Zedong singing'I will survive' or Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk in a pilot episode of Star Trek… all these videos have gone viral despite being fake, or because they were deepfakes. Last year, Marco Rubio, the Republican senator from Florida, said deepfakes are as potent as nuclear weapons in waging wars in a democracy. "In the old days, if you wanted to threaten the United States, you needed 10 aircraft carriers, and nuclear weapons, and long-range missiles. Today, you just need access to our Internet system, to our banking system, to our electrical grid and infrastructure, and increasingly, all you need is the ability to produce a very realistic fake video that could undermine our elections, that could throw our country into tremendous crisis internally and weaken us deeply," Forbes quoted him as saying.

Women have been taking to Twitter to encourage fellow females to upgrade to iOS 11 immediately and to enable the "Emergency SOS" function, which requires a brief set-up before it's operational.
