Karlin's snazzy top coat

Here is Karlin in her dazzling top coat as mentioned on tonights show. She defintely outshone me and George.

We also talked about the LG Viewty a stunning camera phone with a patchy touch screen and pretty shoddy PC integration software.

The conference on “me mes” as George referred to them is an important waypoint in charting the development of the web as a social medium for everybody. Everything you want to know about memes is detailed below along with some classic examples. (Karlin did the heavy lifting for this bit).

Memes:

Meme Defintion : (From wikipedia) : /miːm or mɛm/) consists of any unit of cultural information, such as a practice or idea, that gets transmitted verbally or by repeated action from one mind to another. Examples include thoughts, ideas, theories, practices, habits, songs, dances and moods and terms such as race, culture, and ethnicity. Memes propagate themselves and can move through a “culture” in a manner similar to the behavior of a virus.
