WIRED: Article from WIRED Magazine …

MONTEREY, California — In the 1970s, Richard Dawkins coined the term “meme” in his book The Selfish Gene to refer to aspects of human culture and how they evolve in a way that’s analogous to how genes evolve. Since then, the study of memes has become an evolving meme itself.

A meme can be a song or snippet of a song, a dance, an urban legend, an expression or behavior, a product brand or even a religion.
