Techopedia explains ROFLCon

Because ROFLCon appealed to Internet meme culture aficionados, the conference has drawn notable Internet celebrities, including the authors of Questionable Content, Dinosaur comics, xkcd, Leeroy Jenkins and Jay Maynard (The Tron Guy).

ROFLCon events included panel-audience discussions moderated by Internet celebrities. Select guests gave rousing speeches about today's Internet culture. Each gathering ended with a live concert.
