The Viral Sensation “I Am Not A Cat” – Tech Tuesday In Two Minutes

Posted by

Have you seen the Zoom video laughed about around the world?

“I am not a cat.” This is what a lawyer in Texas claimed in front of a judge and his peers when Zoom mixed with a kitten screen filter gone wrong created a scene of staggering hilarity. It immediately went viral, and highlighted both the humor of video technology and the reality of what can happen when things go sideways (which they often do). It’s a situation we can all relate to, and the cat/lawyer knew that the world could use the laugh. If you need more context, the video is below, and check out The New York Times article, ‘I’m Not a Cat,’ Says Lawyer Having Zoom Difficulties.

This is what Heather Backman and I discussed this morning over on Jack 103 FM for a couple of minutes.

What is Tech Tuesday?

If you ever find yourself wondering… What, exactly, is the point of TikTok? How can I make myself look better on a Zoom? Reddit? What’s that about? How do I help my kids be safer online? Who’s the latest creator and streamer that I should be checking out?

You are not alone.

Every Tuesday – for just a few minutes – I join Heather Backman (my old buddy from her days on CHOM FM) on the air at Jack 103 (Rogers Sports & Media) to give a quick blast about the current state of technology, media and Internet culture. We’re calling the segment Tech Tuesday (and we do it in just a few minutes).
