This is an experiment in meme propagation being undertaken by Scott Eric Kaufman (I nabbed this from the Scottish Heathen). He’s measuring the speed of meme transmission across the blogosphere, by means subtle and electronic. Please help! Yes, you!
1. Write a post linking to this one in which you explain the experiment. (All blogs count, be they TypePad, Blogger, MySpace, Facebook, etc.)
2. Ask your readers to do the same. Beg them. Relate sob stories about poor graduate students in desperate circumstances. Imply I’m one of them. (Do whatever you have to. If that fails, try whatever it takes.)
3. Ping Techorati.
