The Los Angeles Times managed to score an exclusive interview with the man behind the Roll, and with insight such as “I think it’s just one of those odd things where something gets picked up and people run with it; But that’s what brilliant about the Internet.” it’s a must read.

“You know the rules, and so do I…”
Yesterday was April Fools’ Day, but I feel like it should have just been called Official Rick Roll Day, since so many sites (DYH included) used it as an excuse for a little meme misdirection. (YouTube Rick Rolling anyone and everyone that clicked on a featured video link was a classic!)
However, not all sites went for the easy/obvious gag, and some managed to pull some pretty funny stunts. Below are some of my favorites:
ThinkGeek’s line of April Fools products, including the Pii Pii Brothers
Aviary’s Dodo: Web-Based Time Machine
