I know what you mean by appropriation and decontextualization, Mark. I honestly am not sure whether that opportunity (temptation?) will materialize, but I’ve seen it happen. I also agree that a lot of good, serendipitous things have occurred to inoculate us against some of that.
And yes, we model what’s possible through the savvy use of social media: our gif battles are second to none. I certainly glad I’ve had the chance to meet you!
