Just to say a *big* thanks to everyone who contributed ideas for my
memetics presentation in December. I found out today I'd got an A
(combined mark for both the presentation plus a written component). Comments were:
Congratulations - we thought this was easily the best presentation we
saw to date and this is reflected in the mark. It was delivered in a
confident manner, you used lots of techniques to make it more
interesting and it was well referenced and gave a balanced view.
The wiki pages are equally good - they reflect and add to the
presentation and are very well referenced and illustrated.
The techniques I think he is referring to are the use of props and the
copying experiment - which were suggested on this list. I'm chuffed
with this because it all counts towards the class of degree I receive.
So many thanks for the input people!
On a related note, and possibly of interest to people, I had the exam
last week, and one of the choices of questions was:
What is "Darwin's Dangerous Idea" and why does Daniel Dennett seem to
think some researchers are scared of embracing it? [50 marks]
And in looking through the past exam papers, on the 2005 paper there
Could the key ideas of dualism be said to form the basis of a very
successful meme? [50 marks]
This was distributed via the memetics list associated with the
Journal of Memetics - Evolutionary Models of Information Transmission
