ahh…The Dancing Baby…1996.  Probably the first Internet Meme. My first experience with the ‘InterWeb’ i think. We were amazed at the technology…others include “Charlie Bit My Finger” with 100 million views [wtf?]
and of course Susan Boyle made the list at #20. 

Some are weird and bizarre, but isn’t that what the internet is all about?!

economic-stimulus-625x250-21Has anyone else noticed there seems to be a lot of bacon out there these days?  Well I have…so I googled ‘Bacon Meme’, and sure enough, this is a meme that has been around for about 6 months or so.  
Memes are viral. The term was coined by Richard Dawkins, In his book ‘The Selfish Gene’. Memes are  ideas that spread over the internet  – like a gene, they evolve and replicate, passed from one person to another. Remember the dancing baby way back when the Internet started?  
“Memes are the cultural counterpart of genes.”  

Here is a quick clip to further explain the Bacon Meme.  They are missing “Baconaisse” though…!
