    I put this forward because i think that's how a work on cultural
    developments or memetics should be. The author has a point he
    makes which might be controversial but the thing here is that he
    not only gives his personal opinion but shows how behaviors (open
    source development) vary between cultures/nations and he gives
    statistics and figures!

    It would be cool if something like that would be able in memetics.
    To have a globe graph and show for example the distribution of
    certain tastes or behaviors. That would be more useful than a
    hundred different opinions and personal tastes.

    This was distributed via the memetics list associated with the
    Journal of Memetics - Evolutionary Models of Information Transmission
    For information about the journal and the list (e.g. unsubscribing)
