Meme

January 31, 2009

I’ve used the term for some time, but only in my roommate Molly’s question about its definition have I looked it up. Who knew! It also ” comprises a unit or element of cultural ideas, symbols or practices; transmitted from one mind to another through speech, gestures, rituals, or other imitable phenomena.”

So, a meme could be like a bee dance? A pointing-in-a-direction? Maybe this isn’t quite right but I am certainly loving the idea of the imitate-able gesture being a meme unit.
