An extremely useful meme?

January 24, 2006

Imagine if someone created a meme that ended up having some type of value? Meaning that it would end up benefiting someone, rather than just being fun for its participants and readers.

Imagine a meme where everyone kept adding $2 (or 5, or 10) to a paypal account and at the end we’d have a collection large enough to give to a one of the hurricane victims. With Paypal allowing for micropayments now, with no money taken, maybe this could be a good idea?

The way that the “Four Things” meme has spread through the Internet faster than a Windows virus written by a sixteen year old Russian, perhaps we could leverage this power for good instead of just for fun.
