Memelab April 2015

I have had the great pleasure again to join Susan Blackmore's memelab on the 18th and 19th of April 2015. Susan invited us to stay in her beautiful home to have some interesting talks about memetics.

Here are the people who came this time. From left to right:
Steven Smith, Pascal Jouxtel, Sylvain Magne, Susan Blackmore, Paul Marsden and Alan Winfield.

Among the many subjects we talked about there was:

  • leaving religion
  • the "Je suis Charlie" meme #jesuischarlie
  • the Jihadi brides phenomenon
  • the definition of the meme
  • de-darwinising culture and re-darwinising culture

As always, this was a very fruitful, intense and fun time. I also learnt how to play croquet and loved it. I very much look forward to our next memelab.
