Hi Joe Dees -

Didn't say they did- far from it. Skill sets and experience,
communication and culture, schools and groups- all a part, as you mention.
What I am insisting upon declaring (all for the moment to see how far it
carries me, and so far, it's carrying me way further than anything else
has) is that only the actual product of these combines is the only thing
that can be called a meme.
