Internet finds new use
For those who feel impotent about the current oil spill crisis there are numerous ways to vent your rage.
Greenpeace, always on British Petroleum’s case, is offering a Web site where proposed new BP logos, to replace the green sunburst, can be posted.
Those who go to the site are urged to remember that a few years ago, after it had gobbled up several other major oil companies, BP declared that it wanted to be called “Beyond Petroleum” henceforth.
Here are suggestions so far:
Although it really is already an Internet Meme, a concept that spreads quickly via the Internet and other routes, trashing BP has become almost a national, indeed, international past time.
Hackers have taken over BP Internet sets to mock the company. This has been going on for several years.
It likely would be difficult to assess everything that has been said on Twitter. I personally didn’t see it, but there was a report that someone tweeted that while negative people see the ocean as half full of oil BP is dedicated to make it half empty.
BP jokes also are available. There is at least one forum set up to allow people to vent.
