Episode 243 - MBSing with Henry Birdseye - Making Friends and Jokes Online

From the podcast: MBSing

Wednesday, January 31st, 2018

Henry figured out how to use the internet to chat with friends and strangers alike at a young, desktop dial-up age. He's remained at the forefront of users for new platforms, networks, and apps due to some combo of an innate desire to connect online, a genuine curiosity at what the internet can do, and a relatively-innocent streak of trolling and shit-posting. From Geocities to Facebook frames, Smash Boards to Echo Skills, Henry's made some viral gags and met some lifelong friends as "jackasskid" and "tehawesome." And as "someone who goes by Henry Stinson Birdseye III."

Notes:

Henry has a pretty good compendium of his goofs on Tumblr
