    <<Pardon me, but I thought that the orthodox view was that memes are
    inherited by imitation. What's new about that?>>

    I don't know about "orthodox." Susan Blackmore is the main proponent of that
    view. I described many methods of meme transmission other than direct
    imitation in VIRUS OF THE MIND. As you pointed out in other messages, it
    seems evident to me that there are many types of memes that could not
    possibly be transmitted by direct imitation.

    This was distributed via the memetics list associated with the
    Journal of Memetics - Evolutionary Models of Information Transmission
