I once thought that memes were just dressed up smart remarks and to a degree, I still do. but my kids tell me that they are a language unto themselves. Fine. So I have a new language to learn if I want (or chose?) to keep up with this younger culture.
However, the more I learn, the more I’m convinced that these are not a language, for clearly memes use existing languages but exist only in the context of a few social sites like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, thus anything I produce but collect only within the confines of this blog may not be considered by some as real memes.
Let’s see where this experiment leads but I may find that I have to rename this section: “Smart Remarks”.
