GODWIN’S LAW, LEWIS’S LAW, POE’S LAW, and… RUGNETTA’S LAW? It’s not often that we think RULES govern the way we act on the INTERNET like the way rules govern us in real life, but on this week’s episode of Idea Channel Mike looks at how behavior on the internet isn’t so much actively governed by laws, but rather that all behavior somehow follows…patterns?? From EPIC MEMES to USELESS debates, this week’s episode of PBS Idea Channel isn’t one to miss.
