In the annals of internet culture, perhaps no form of communication has been as ubiquitous or as persistent or as remarkably versatile as the demotivator. Honestly, we’re kind of embarrassed that we haven’t yet had it represented in one form or another in one of our previous events.

To rectify that huge oversight, we went straight to the source and I am very glad to officially announce today that the ROFLCon team has officially confirmed co-founders Jef Sewell and Dr. E.L. Kersten, the folks behind Despair, Inc., to appear and speak at ROFLCon!

The Despair folks have been up to alot since they booted up their company back in 1998. Notably, the company is currently the proud owners of the trademark on all uses of the emoticon “:-(“. And, most recently, they’ve uncovered and are re-releasing The Rise of Charles Ponzi, which is (no kid), the actual memoirs of Mr. Charlie-P, his scheme, and his battle against the Boston banks. Looking to be fairly incredible, definitely check it out.
