I guess I'm supposed to do this because Melissa is making me. She calls it a meme, and she says she was tagged and now she's tagging me.

According to The American Heritage Dictionary, a meme is
A unit of cultural information, such as a cultural practice or idea, that is transmitted verbally or by repeated action from one mind to another.
And at I Am Pariah it appears that there is a long list of memes for bloggers. He says
In Blogspeak, a meme is an idea that is shared and passed from blog to blog, like a question posted in one blog and answered in many other blogs.
Shows how out of the loop I am: I don't speak Blogspeak. Anyway, since Melissa passed this on from her blog to mine, I guess there is a sacred pact among bloggers that requires me to go with it.

It's called 4.

  1. Hey Lane, although it'd be fun to do the 4 game, don't hold your breath for an e-mail from me. However, I sometimes blog, you can read it here.

    I've read that memes are the new genes. In the future (now) it is more important to have your ideas passed on than your genetic information. As someone who will not be having children, I find this to be an especially appealing notion.
