    I was wondering, is Dawkins the first person to use the word meme in it's modern sense? Did someone else turn it into "internet meme"?

    I believe so. I think it first was published in "The Selfish Gene," still a worth while read even 30 years after its publication.

    Susan Blackmore tried to invent the science of memetics, which Dawkins was, I believe, a little embarrassed about, as he felt it was taking his idea too far. What's the status of memetics today, I wonder?
