Ignite talks are 5 minute presentations about anything. The talks are designed to be quick, fun, and digestible. Ideas can spark revolutions. I had an idea for an Ignite talk about memes. I am fascinated by internet memes and how they get started. Through my research of memes, I ended up learning a lot more than I expected.
“My Meme” is a talk about memes, and how we are hardwired to spread ideas. Humans use a process of imitation, transformation, and combination to invent new things, change culture, or just to share sometime new.
