Speaking of M.I.A., meet Ryder Ripps, who has also collaborated with and made GIFs for the British recording artist. Ripps, born July 7, 1989 in New York, is kind of a big deal when it comes to the Internet. After Yahoo! shut down GeoCities, homeboy created Internet Archaeology to archive old content in 2009. He also co-founded Dump.fm, a site which allows users to communicate in real-time with images. Much of his work comments on and are reminiscent of the both the Internet today and what it used to be a decade ago.
