Muggles and Memetics

Posted here .

I joined Kristan last night for the release of the 5th Harry Potter book. It was quite surreal to see a bookstore packed with people, more surreal considering the not-quite-bookish nature of the crowd.

While there I picked up a copy of The Electric Meme by Robert Aunger. It looks to be a serious discussion of memes that will actually expand upon Dawkins’s ideas rather than merely riding the hype.

If you'd like to dicuss this, open the comment thread here or contact me.
