Here's an article by Marshall Poe about trying to write a book about Wikipedia.

And here's the wikipedia entry on "Meme"

And here is a trailer for a film about memes - and also zombies.






See the connections?

Big ideas are shared as we as humans tend to share certain genes. Our cultures' genes mutate and spread like viruses. Zombie viruses are also contagious, spread, and multiply quickly. I should add that the 'big idea' to make a zombie movie not only passed along quickly, but there doesn't seem to be a cure either.

Everyone's all over the Tipping Point, huh? I read Blink and I've read about 4 or 5 non-fiction books that mention The Tipping Point.
