It seems our friend Chris Garrett has meme-tagged Search-This.

First, a little background on memes. The term meme originated by well known and outspoken atheist Richard Dawkins in his book ‘The Selfish Gene’. A meme, as defined by Google is, “a unit of cultural transmission, or a unit of imitation. Examples of memes are tunes, ideas, catch-phrases, clothes fashions, ways of making pots or of building arches. Just as genes propagate themselves in the gene pool by leaping from body to body via sperms or eggs, so memes propagate themselves in the meme pool by leaping from brain to brain via a process which, in the broad sense, can be called imitation.”

Well… that was nice, what does it mean in blogging?

For bloggers memes have become synonymous with internet quizzes, surveys, and novelties that people link to and pass around on their blogs.

Many of these memes are trivial and not worth participating in, let alone asking your precious blog viewers to participate in. But, not this one! This one has a cause — this one is — the Charity Link Meme!

Simply put, you are giving link love to charities. Take the original list and add your 5 charities of choice to the list!

Here is the original list …

… My five charities of choice…

… And the people I am going to tag…

Go to it people! Give some love today 🙂

My very first tag! I’m honored, but not enough honor to do it before I go to bed (plus, I already blogged 3 entries today, don’t want to swamp my 4 readers). Thanks for the love!

Let it be known, it shall be done.

@Marc: cool, thanks.

@Brendon: 3 blog entries in a day, nice work!

Well, it is and it isn’t. It’s a mix of a personal blog, a work blog, and a hobby/programming blog. I have no focus; but I realize the error of my ways! So…if the shoemaker ever gets a chance to make himself some shoes, I too will remake my site and optimize things.

Either way, I’ve gotten the meme up. Thanks for tagging me for a good cause!

[…] from search-this tagged me, so here is the list that was published until now: Service International – Disaster […]
