Featured Topic: Music Meme
by mburtonk

This week's featured topic: Lips of an Angel - Hinder [music meme]. Check it out and add your own response!

A meme is a unit of cultural information that gets passed from person to person almost like a virus. This term (invented by evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins) has been modified by Internet users (primarily by bloggers and through email) to refer to any series of questions that gets passed around to be filled in (often through unorthodox ways) in order to learn more about people. In this case, the meme is a series of questions about your life, as you can see in the original post. In keeping with the virus terminology, people are often specifically "tagged" to answer memes (example).

Even though there are only a handful of people who have responded, it looks like Campus Dakota members have a fairly diverse selection of music. Below the fold is a list of bands that have already been named and some of the more amusing answers . . .

It appears the lock did not work since they are coming through Serendipity and probably being written to the database directly as opposed to being filtered through SMF.  I will block these IP addresses at the server level.
