Hello. My name is Kenyatta Cheese. Here is my bio:
This is a short bio:
Kenyatta Cheese is a professional internet enthusiast. He is probably best known for co-creating the web series and internet meme database Know Your Meme, often cited as the go to resource for understanding web culture.

Here is a less bio-ish bio:
I create, study, and foster media, culture, and technology.
I create projects that help decentralize media and understand culture.
I became an early evangelist of online video and helped shape the aesthetics of online video with early web projects like BrowseTV, WiFiTV, and vogbrowser.
In 1998 I started a weblog at kenyattacheese.net. That same year I started a weblog for Manhattan Neighborhood Network, the public access television station in New York City. Three months later they asked me to stop.
In 2001, I created Durban Diaries, a blog that distributed video files using RSS and media enclosures.
In 2002 I co-created WiFiTV which married a laptop, a firewire camcorder, a backpack, and a wireless card to send live remote video wirelessly from the street to broadcast.
In 2004 I founded Unmediated.org, one of the first blogs to track trends in decentralized and distributed media.
I co-created the web series and internet meme database Know Your Meme. Time Magazine selected it as one of their top websites of 2009.
From 2007-2010 I ran Operations for the internet video content studio Rocketboom.
I also advise NGOs in the arts and media technology.
I sit on the Advisory Board of the Eyebeam Center for Art and Technology.
In past iterations, I have served as Senior Technical Manager at the Eyebeam Center for Art and Technology, and Director of Technology for Manhattan Neighborhood Network.
