This term keep surfacing in my web surfing… Meme. According to Dictionary.com, the definition is:
a cultural item that is transmitted by repetition in a manner analogous to the biological transmission of genes.
There’s a cool service for us tech junkies called Techmeme.
Techmeme’s mission is as follows (according to the Techmeme About section):
At this moment, the next big story in technology may reside on a blog you’ve never heard of or a news site you don’t have time to scan.
So I built a software agent to surface these links in real time and the result is Techmeme, the site you’re visiting now.
Coverage is driven by a mix of industry insiders, passionate independents, and established journalists. So Techmeme gets the story no matter where it appears, and often days before it hits major sites.
Techmeme has consistently provided interesting stories from the forefront of technology… Today’s headlines include information about the iPhone, FCC, AOL, Google, Intel, AMD, Blogging… and so much more. It’s a feast for the mind for us techno-geeks.
And if that wasn’t enough, Techmeme also provides a leaderboard for the top sources for the information on their pages.
So if you’re a tech junkie like myself, you can keep abreast of what’s going on in the industry pretty easily by browsing the headlines here. Techmeme does an amazing job of transmitting these technological items repeatedly!
Until next time… Enjoy!
