About digital rights, environmentalism, etc.

August 10, 2003

This is a study in how a meme works. An idea moves into a population (namely, Vancouverites) through a viral model--through a whole bunch of carriers. I mentioned this flash mob thing last week on Vancouver Webloggers. At the same time, somebody starts a Yahoo group on the subject. Then the Vancouver Province, that reactionary rag, apparently runs a front page story (no link available at the moment).
