Some students are so creative! And, they are funny, too! Brian Anthony Hernandez wrote "20 Colleges Where Internet Memes Are All the Rage" for Mashable. Richard Dawkins introduced memes in his 1976 book The Selfish Gene. A meme is a unit of cultural information that is transmitted from one to another. Hernandez talks about humor based on college culture that is depicted on Facebook.

Merrifield Consulting Group shares "Fast Growth Management Memes" in nine exhibits. See Exhibits 45 - 53 at http://www.merrifield.com/exhibits. According to Merrifield a meme "is like a personal value statement -- "Do unto others. . .".  Memes are combat-tested truisms that have competitively emerged over the years. They guide you towards more successful decisions. They are the smallest unit of intellectual message that can be transferred from mind to mind." Management memes would include "respect employees, satisfy the customer, and grow a business or perish."

Mastermind Solutions has two videos on memetics at http://www.mastermindsolutions.ca/memetics.htm.
