Thanks for the clarity, it's nice to get some insight in to your intentions. If nothing else, it's good to know that you aren't the one to blame for the fact that "Meme Weaver" has been the song stuck in my head all weekend.

Curious, what was the title you would have gone with? I agree with mk that it reads as a cathartic piece and I wonder if your title would have reflected this? It may have quelled some of the dispute below. Titles are powerful things, as is evidenced by the recurring Gary Wright song in my head.

Welcome to Hubski mpoe, I look forward to seeing you around.

The title I suggested was "My Inner Marshall McLuhan," which would have been wry (I have no inner MM). But magazine editors like "clever," so we got "Meme Weaver."

BTW, someone in this thread asked what happened to the spiked book. It will forever remained unpublished. But the theoretical kernel of it germinated into a longer, more detailed, and more ambitious book that was, in fact, published. It's here:

Only because "My Inner Marshall McLuhan" has the advantage of not invoking this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Im8uIoq1fjs I'll say it beats out "Meme Weaver". Thanks for the link.
