An article in the .Net magazine talks about how programmers are surrounded by stereotypes which create a stigma of being anti-social and having low amounts of personal skills.

It allowed me to develop the idea that Internet memes are built upon the reapproproation of stereotypes that already exist in the world. Rage comics, a popular example of Internet memes, are mash-ups of stereotypical personality traits within western society.
