From 15 minutes of fame
- A modest amount of fame achieved in the world of computing, as by inclusion on a popular video or audio clip available on the Internet.
1995, The New Yorker:
- Culture is your friend who likes to draw […] . / The web is an opportunity to make good our fifteen megabytes of fame. / The more widespread and grassroots the Internet, the more difficult it will be to dominate and control it.
