Memetics experiments around the elections


The enblogment by Lessig of Kerry is becoming a full blown applied memetics experiment, in both establishing the power of weblogs in spreading a neologism, and in establishing their influence. Winer’s page tracking the enblogments of the various candidates, and the Google tracker he posted will measure the spreading in the blogosphere, and on the web.

I wrote a Wikipedia entry for the verb “to enblog”, and recorded the birth process of the meme.
