Memes and Temes

I am generally not a fan of neologisms — especially in the wake of having recently suffered through a talk which was nothing more than a string of neologisms — but I found myself interested in Susan Blackmore’s notion of *teme* (short for technological meme) in her TED talk:

It pairs nicely with Kevin Kelly’s *technium*. There certainly seems to be an emergence in the zeitgeist that wants to think about the directions technology is taking us. (This may, in fact, be part of an ongoing dialogue in the West, which bears a bit of research on my part at some point in the near future.)
