As defined here: -

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meme

Quote:
Different definitions of meme generally agree, very roughly, that a meme consists of some sort of a self-propagating unit of cultural evolution having a resemblance to the gene (the unit of genetics). Dawkins introduced the term after writing that evolution depended not on the particular chemical basis of genetics, but only on the existence of a self-replicating unit of transmission — in the case of biological evolution, the gene. For Dawkins, the meme exemplifies another self-replicating unit, and most importantly, one which he thought would prove useful in explaining human behavior and cultural evolution.

In casual use, the term meme often refers to any piece of information passed from one mind to another. In this sense, it is closely related to folklore (as it is studied in the academy), in that folkloristics deals with the informal communication of cultural information. This usage more closely resembles the analogy of "language as a virus" than Dawkins' analogy of memes as replicating units. This definition has come into popular use on the Internet to refer to phenomena such as Obey Giant, "All your base are belong to us", Blogebrity and Icy Hot Stuntaz.

I reckon it is. If so, these boards have contributed something to the cultural capital of humanity. grin

i'm going with google. 14,700,000. which proves libcom is a small player in the wide world of cocks. although union is 480,000,000 so according to JDMFs theory of cock the rest of the internet world also has its priorities right.

we still have hope before the cocksters take over finally.

rkn, thats odd! I tried to search for topics, and that was 204 topics with the word cock in them. "Posts" return 477. You probably searched for the word "cock" with the author "jack" and got over 200 wink

(no, just tested it and it returns shockingly low number of 54 posts! eek )

See? Now it's a verb, too.

Surely "Cock" needs to go into the libcom glossary.

Can we use this precedent to replace the word "cock" with "meme"? It sounds so much better.
