Fascinating list, thank you! The "meme about memes" is certainly current
among this professional class.
But I wasn't clear about what I was trying to ask. Has anyone used "meme"
on the consumers? As in "buy our memes!" or "Joe Blow has the better meme
set, vote for him as dog catcher!" So far I can't think of an example.
This was distributed via the memetics list associated with the
Journal of Memetics - Evolutionary Models of Information Transmission
