Mama Cate and BitchPhD linked to this guy who’s trying to track the progress of memes through the blogosphere.  (See a better explanation here.)  He’s planning to use it for a panel at the (apparently upcoming) MLA conference.  So let’s see how well this works, shall we?  To participate, write a post explaining the study, link to his post, try to get other people to do the same, and ping technorati via the original post.
