    Thanks for the link. I find it very difficult browse on my BB and hence miss out reading many of your links. It is good to have the best of the week consolidated in your blog.

    On #3. I found the theory of memes being living truly facinating when I read it in Selfish Gene. I didn’t think Dawkins himself took it very serious. But with the advent of internet memes do seem to have aquired a life of its own.

    Thanks Archana. Glad you find the FTOTW useful.

    Yes, Dawkins’ meme concept is fascinating. Quite prescient of him.
