Meme

There is always something new to learn - I've seen this term around for awhile and never knew what it was or had the time to check it out. Meme - Pronounced "mem" by some and "meam" by some - whatever the pronunciation, it carries this type of meaning:
  • An idea that, like a gene, can replicate and evolve.
  • A unit of cultural information that represents a basic idea that can be transferred from one individual to another, and subjected to mutation, crossover and adaptation.
  • A cultural unit (an idea or value or pattern of behavior) that is passed from one generation to another by nongenetic means (as by imitation); "memes are the cultural counterpart of genes".

  • The ones I've seen are people with same interests "tagging" other people and making lists about that interest.

    So, here goes,
    My meme list for instructional tech:

    help others find effective ways to use tech
    continual updates and learning for myself
    trying new equipment and software
    taking classes
    videoconferencing
    blogging
    vidcasts
    podcasts
    wiki projects
    live in-house broadcasts

    What would you add to the list?
