a Recent Spike in Cat
Are cats becoming the new "cool"? The internet has long adored cats as the cutest and strangest creatures for quite a while. Cats (lolcats specifically) have been somewhat of a mascot to the internet for viral amusement. This comical theme is still largely intact, but there appears to be a recent surge of catlike art which is more than just humor.
Even the latest Makerware 2.2 from Makerbot Industries has a nifty Catlike Infill pattern. This is a remarkable and deliberate effort, considering most infill patterns are utilitarian in nature. This new infill pattern will arguably be the most abstract of the patterns, when compared to Line, Square, and Hexagon.
The upcoming Super Mario 3D World, announced at last week's E3 expo, featured a new addition to the powerups arsenal. As depicted by the trailer, Mario will be granted many unique abilities as a catlike protagonist.
I for one, welcome our new feline overlords whom will certainly bring about some additional culture and a graduated set of meme's to follow.
