I love the meme topic on the forum. I have been reading Richard Brodie’s Virus of the Mind. I know it has been blown to mere hokem, but I like it. Has anyone benefited from this thought process? Or read another book on memes?
I was interested by Susan Blackmore and her work when I was in college
I don’t know that much about it though. I don’t recall terrible amount either
Ideas as living agencies that are infectious is sort of an infectious idea lol
Not something I worry about. I tend towards dark thoughts and memes pull me back toward the light. That’s all I need to know.
I think I have Susan Blackmore’s book. I just haven’t read it yet.
It’s interesting. You should read it
I will! It’ll be my next book to add to my selection I’m reading. If it’s half as good as Brodie’s book, I’m interested.
I’ve been trying to make my way through a 1300+ page official documentation of Kotlin, that’s slowing me down on my other books.
I don’t know Brodie or Kotlin…
Can you describe?
Richard Brodie is a professional poker player who worked at Microsoft at one point. He explains how memes are important and how understanding them improves your quality of life. I enjoy it so far, I think I’m on the last 60 pages.
Kotlin is a fun and somewhat new programming language developed by JetBrains, they make IDE’s for writing programs. The also have courses online you can take to learn other languages and topics. I’m not sure why I chose Kotlin as my first real language to learn but I’ve been sticking with it.
That sounds really interesting. Thank you for explaining!!
