    I won't clutter up your mailboxes with the whole article (it's bad enough, dealing with the digests, getting through all the endless replication of entire previous messages- the main reason I don't and only excerpt those passages I'm directly responding to- I was born here on the net, after all, in the 300 baud era, and then, the also endless amount of posts here that are in html format- Bruce- filter that crap!), but, I think it's an important article, if one looks at memetics and culture from the creative viewpoint, and, hey, IMHO, that's a very important perspective.

    It's a small article in the Boston Globe today about an interview with Mark Morris, the choreographer, and seminal performer and alterer of the cultural landscape, which is, after all, what memetics is all about. Even those who still harbor the erroneous imagination that memes are in the mind (where they really can't do anything, d'uh), might enjoy reading about how Morris develops his memes (performances).
