Intro to Memes

Via REDDIT is a nice introduction to the Meme / Memetics concept entitled: The Lifecycle of Memes.

The article defines Meme as "A meme is a (cognitive) information-structure able to replicate using human hosts and to influence their behaviour to promote replication", and notes that this is a stricter definition then is usually used. The author also tries do distinguish meme got more general thoughts or ideas.

I find this construct concept very interesting in that it gives possibilities for modelling with network theory (which I'd like to explore a little bit in the future) and use with 5GW.
