As one of the researchers that has stood up to the challenges set by various other scientists I have applied memetics to the field of linguistics and have been able to make a quantitative study, thus refuting the claim that memetics is only a vague theory with loosely based concepts. From my 2003 study I have created 'Memetics 101' to provide an introduction to the field of memetics. Both novice and beginning memeticist can find basic information about memetics. A further exploration of my master's thesis can be found under that heading whereas my further research can be found in the PhD section.
I hope that you find this page an interesting stop on your journey through memetics and am looking forward to your feedback!
