Baby Dancing to Beyonce

I’m way behind on posting this—how long has it been out now?—but I think Mashable makes an excellent point in their article about the baby dancing to Beyonce’s “Single Ladies”: “It’s sometimes hard to remember that for every web geek crying, “OLD!!!” there are probably half a dozen folks who never saw that video the first time around.”

I am one of the folks in this case and not one of the geeks—I saw it for the first time tonight—but that’s totally cool with me. I don’t need to be a geek 100% of the time, and I’m nuts if I think I can be on top of every meme the moment it comes out. Sometimes, you just gotta accept that the second wave is your wave, man. The second one, and not the first.
