Meme-tastic - Susan Blackmore on Memes and Temes at TED 2008
I've been thinking about memes lately. About the self-propagation of interesting and cool objects or ideas. I read a fair number of diverse blogs - different topics with different geographies and different audiences. Yet I find that they often post the same memes. BoingBoing is one of my favourite meme factories. And Twitter is certainly a meme replicator on steroids! I saw Susan Blackmore earlier this year at TED and I was entranced by her presentation on memes ... how humans are meme machines ... as well as how temes have evolved - temes = technical memes. Love the ideas in her talk.

Susan Blackmore / TED - Technology, Entertainment, DesignSusan Blackmore studies memes: ideas that replicate themselves from brain to brain like a virus.She makes a bold new argument: Humanity has spawned a new kind of meme, the teme, which spreads itself via technology -- and invents ways to keep itself alive. Susan Blackmore is dedicated to understanding the scientific nature of consciousness.Her latest work centers on the existence of memes -- little bits of knowledge, lore, habit that seem to spread themselves using human brains as mere carriers.She's exploring the existence of a new class of meme, spread by human technology.It's temporarily named the "teme."She has written about memes, consciousness, and near-death experiences; has appeared on the British Big Brother to discuss the psychology of the participants; and writes for the Guardian UK.
