I don't use the word species, but I do discuss some mechanisms that might be
seen as analogous to speciation in my paper "Units, Events, and Dynamics in
the Evolutionary Epidemiology of Ideas" at
http://www.thoughtcontagion.com/UED.htm. The most relevant section is
"Section 14 - Qualitative and Quantitative Evolution: Population Creativity."
It discusses the sometimes rapid emergence of combinations of ideas, as well
as new ideas in widely separated people -- all in propagation mechanic terms.
PS, Thanks to Steve Drew for re-trying the stock market papers at
thoughtcontagion.com. His earlier problem in accessing a paper appears to
have been some momentary glitch.
