    <<So a meme is like a coin in that when it passes hands it doesn't become fragmented? Sounds like an article of faith to me.>>

    It's simply a definition.

    A huge amount of space on this list has been devoted to arguing about the definition of meme, which I think is counterproductive. We should have a term for each interesting concept and agree on what concept goes by what name.
