My blog is worth $2,258.16.
How much is your blog worth?

Strangely testing4l.livejournal.com is worthless...
Life: Work. Eat. Sleep. And if I'm very lucky, I do it in that order.

Richard Dawkins has a brief essay in eSkeptic which raises a question that I've raised to intelligent design believers since I spoke at DAIC -- If you believe something is designed based on its suitability for a task, then wouldn't the intelligent designer display the same suitability, and therefore be declared "designed"?

My original question was phrased somewhat more rigorously as the people I presented it to were interested in the application of information theory to their ends, but the point comes through quite nicely.

These things are always a joy for me, but what exactly is a meme?

meme is a work coined by (coincidentally) Richard Dawkins in his book The Selfish Gene. Wikipedia has this to say. Effectively it's something which people pick up and imitate. In doing so, they spread it around and ensure its survival.
