meme blogging study

Hey. If you haven't seen this already in the million other places it has appeared, you're seeing it now. Do it, and help this dude out.

Link to this post in the name of science. Ask others to do the same. Results to be announced during the "Meet the Bloggers" panel at MLA 2006.

Why? A grad student is doing an experiment on the speed of memes.What is the speed of
meme? The specific rules:

  1. Write a post linking to this one in which you explain the experiment. (All blogs count, be they TypePad, Blogger, MySpace, Facebook, &c.)
  2. Ask your readers to do the same. Beg them. Relate sob stories about poor graduate students in desperate circumstances. Imply I'm one of them. (Do whatever you have to. If that fails, try whatever it takes.)
  3. Ping Technorati
Why not?
