Since you asked. :)


Dr. Richard Dawkins (biologist, author, and friend to Douglas Adams) coined this word in 1976 in his book "The Selfish Gene"- meme describes cultural data, (like Bach's 'ideons') which are passed from mind to mind - generation to generation, with all of the recombitant amd adventicious mutations that describe genetic differentiations relatives of families and societies. Others have described possible meme transmission directly through genetics, and more recently, through 'smart' viruses that rewrite the code of infected DNA.

The idea of Meme (from the greek mimema - to imitate) is powerful, beautiful, and IMO, is misunderstood and misused by many in the blogging community.

OK, done babbling.

I'll read your entry now :)
