Genes to Memes--Human and Cultural Evolution, Science of Memetics

Genes to Memes--Human and Cultural Evolution, Science of Memetics | ZipMinis: Science of Blogging | Scoop.it
When Christopher Columbus lands on the Antilles in 1492 under the imperial Spanish flag, he reports his discoveries of the “new world” back to Ferdinand and Isabel. In reality, Columbus never knew in his lifetime that the land he lit upon was not the East Indies, nor could he have fathomed our contemporary criticism of the terms “discovery” and “new world”(25). His letter to the Spanish Royalty reveals much about European cultures in the Fifteenth through Seventeenth centuries. He describes riches to be shipped back, savages ripe for conversion, and land waiting to be claimed for Spain. Columbus gifted the native people with European “trifles of small value” as he “perceived that they could be much more easily converted to our holy faith by gentle means than by force” (25). While he sees the people as “ingenious,” Columbus also observes that they “would be good servants and I am of opinion that they would very readily become Christians, as they appear to have no religion”(25).

Does grammar matter anymore? (LOL)

Does grammar matter anymore? (LOL) | ZipMinis: Science of Blogging | Scoop.it
MoneyWatch) A lot of folks are up in arms over bad grammar invading the workplace. A Wall Street Journal notes what appears to be a growing shift toward informal writing, courtesy of email, social media, and smartphones.
Now, I've got a loyal reader who emails me whenever she catches a typo that gets past our awesome, but human, editors. When she's too busy, there are plenty of readers to back her up. So I wouldn't say that civilization is regressing to the "ugh, me hungry, me want food" stage just yet.

I wrote a blog on how Twitter can affect us in positive ways, writing-wise. If you're interested here is the intro--Many in my English teaching profession bash Twitter, saying that tweeps mangle language, encourage poor writing, promote the trivial, etc. While these concerns are real, this isn't reality for all. Twitter is not writing's satan. If one is looking for rich development, in-depth analysis, synthesis of sources, and so forth, Twitter fails. However, working on the sentence level, where most need help, confining what might be said in 250 words to 140 can be positive. This is only effective if one avoids the cheats and short cuts of text messaging...

Genes to Memes--Human and Cultural Evolution, Science of Memetics Part II--Variations on the Theme of Memes

Genes to Memes--Human and Cultural Evolution, Science of Memetics Part II--Variations on the Theme of Memes | ZipMinis: Science of Blogging | Scoop.it
Have you ever wondered what makes Youtube videos go viral or where the idea of "viral" in this sense came from? This article will provide a context that offers an answer. If you missed part one yesterday (find below this post), please read it first, or at least watch the video. The language of Susan Blackmore, I think, is more precise in describing memes than the authors discussed yesterday. Blackmore is the speaker in the Ted Talk. In The Meme Machine, Blackmore says that memes perpetuated in a culture are efficient in positioning themselves to be replicated. Successful memes in the “meme pool” are effective at getting themselves duplicated” (10). The agents are humans, computers, televisions, soda cans, T shirts, etc.—anything that can transmit a bit of culture.

 

This is my blog entry for 6/22/2012. Please click the title above to read on, and thank you for visiting. If you haven't read Part I (6/21/2012), you'll find it there as well. The two are intended to go together. Thank you so much for reading.
