    Well talking about promiscuity, some months ago you argued that
    memes are artefacts only. Now you say that only behaviours are
    memes. What's the next idea you're going to come up with? In a
    few months you'll probably have cycled through all the different
    meme-classes always thinking that "only THIS is a meme".

    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)
