Christopher Poole, who many of you know as "Moot" (The Founder of 4chan) did a live talk at SXSW about internet culture in general. You can find the link below. He does very briefly mention ponies, which you can find at the bookmarked section of the video.
At least he knows they exist!
Moot's Speech at SXSW, or the pony part at least.
Anyway I just needed something to break up the massive amount of fics uploaded today. I'll be home in 5 hours to throw more stuff up!
