But, I’m not mad at not getting the credit. This is the nature of blogs and meme theory, which I’ve discussed a few times. The notion is that good ideas will be reproduced in new hosts and will evolve over time. I started the blog intending to reach as many as 5 people a day and if I post decent enough ideas, then they are reproduced for another generation. If I only reach 2 people and they each reach 2 people, etc…then I am only 32 generations away from reaching everyone on Earth. The internet allows for that kind of rapid reproduction in a way that journals of academia fail misrably.
Thanks for the quote, Andrew. Maybe you can give me a hit-generating link for my ego, too?
