    Looking at how deep the "meme about memes" has embedded itself in our culture . . . .

    Here's one, LawMeme.

    "LawMeme, a collaboration between the ISP, the Yale Law and Technology Society and the Yale Journal of Law and Technology delivers the latest law and technology news, commentary and feedback via the Web."

    "LawMeme is a law and technology weblog affiliated with Yale Law School and was founded in 2001. Our links and articles focus on the mutual influence of technological development and legal doctrine. LawMeme is staffed by Yale students, but we welcome submissions from all readers."

    "What does LawMeme mean?

    "Meme- a unit of cultural information, such as a cultural practice or idea, that is transmitted verbally or by repeated action from one mind to another.

    "LawMeme - a unit of legal information, such as a law or regulation, that is transmitted verbally or by repeated action from one mind to another."

    So about the time we see the fall off in research papers, LawMeme starts.
