Meme Mania

Blogger Betsy and I were talking about meme's today....What's a Meme?

Wikipedia offers this definition:
The term "meme" ([miːm] in the IPA; rhymes with "theme"), refers to any piece of information transferable from one mind to another. Examples might include thoughts, ideas, theories, practices, habits, songs, dances and moods. Different definitions of meme generally agree, very roughly, that a meme consists of some sort of a self-propagating unit of cultural evolution having a resemblance to the gene (the unit of genetics).
Scobleizer shares his opinion on Memeorandom a Meme tracker.
So, what does Memeorandum do? It watches the top bloggers in these two worlds and analyzes what we link to. The more bloggers who link to a specific story the higher on Memorandum it goes.
OK....I'm starting to get it.
AHHHH....I have so much to learn...my brain is full!
