Memetic Lexicon
The Memetic Lexicon is a work of genius by Canadian Glenn Grant and may very well be the first really insightful work into memetics and the surrounding theory and philosophy. I discovered this lexicon in the early 90s but then published it onto in 1999. Enjoy. I still take most of my understanding from this Memetic Lexicon.

meme /meem/ /n./ [coined by analogy with `gene', by Richard Dawkins] An idea considered as a replicator, esp. with the connotation that memes parasitize people into propagating them much as viruses do. Used esp. in the phrase `meme complex' denoting a group of mutually supporting memes that form an organized belief system, such as a religion. This lexicon is an (epidemiological) vector of the `hacker subculture' meme complex; each entry might be considered a meme. However, `meme' is often misused to mean `meme complex'. Use of the term connotes acceptance of the idea that in humans (and presumably other tool- and language-using sophonts) cultural evolution by selection of adaptive ideas has superseded biological evolution by selection of hereditary traits. Hackers find this idea congenial for tolerably obvious reasons.
