Some things spread like wildfire across the blogs. But, can an artificial meme, designed specifically to measure the speed of its spreading, spread as fast? If we know its speed, can we know its position at the same time, and vice versa? You’ll know the answer (pretty soon) if you link to this from your blog.
Perhaps it would be more useful to track the already existing and popular memes, like Beautiful Bird Meme, Random Quotes Meme, Silly Blog Meme, Four Meme, Zero Meme, Dirty Thirty Meme, States Meme, Obscure-But-Good-Movies Meme, Four Jobs Meme, The Blogging Blog Meme, Browser Meme, Seven Times Seven Meme or many, different, book, memes and compare those that include tagging the recepients to those that are free-for-all, those that are general to all bloggers to those that are specific to one particular corner of the blogosphere, as well as compare these “intelligently designed” memes to those that arise spontaneously when someone posts important piece of news or a cool picture.
Also, the Academic Blog Meme was tracked as well.
