Do you Know what a "meme" is? replicating ideas?


From TED:
Susan Blackmore studies memes: ideas that replicate themselves, passing from brain to brain like a physical virus. At TED2008, Blackmore makes a bold new argument: Humanity has spawned a new category of meme, the "teme," which spreads itself via technology -- and invents brand-new ways to keep itself alive. (Recorded February 2008 in Monterey, California. Duration: 19:28.)

Do you know of anybody researching "memes" and movement? are dance styles "memes"?

Hi Marlon, I watched most of this presentation yesterday - interesting topic. I was wondering same question you pose.

There are a number of ways to ask this question as it relates to dance and movement. How do specific dance moves, styles and genres of dance get propagated and replicated via the Internet? And the same question for the offline transmission of dance moves.

And, following-up on "temes," is there something unique about the way dance gets transmitted and replicated in the online world? I think that these are very difficult questions to answer. I wonder if anybody has created methodology for answering these questions and what types of results they have come-up with.
