The Meme That Imagines It’s 3017

What with Trump and climate change, the prospect of the human race lasting another thousand years seems highly uncertain. Nonetheless, the internet is looking forward to 3017. The 3017 meme, which has been circulating for a while, acclaims someone – or something – ahead of their time. The Daily Dot says it started out as praise for musicians so forward-thinking, they belong in the future – like the rapper Wintertime and Janelle Monae (pictured). Now, perhaps because we live in a turbulent era, it’s morphed into a meme about how the best is yet to come – in 1,000 years.
