the speed of net

Being far too lazy to actually type this out myself, I’m just stealing it wholesale from :

(several minutes later, eta: points out neither nor I can actually read instructions. Acephalous appears to actually be running this experiment, and the entry in question to be used is this one, not the one below. :D o.o)

is conducting a wee experiment, to establish the speed of meme: to find out actually how far, how fast one new meme can spread across teh interwebs.

Here is a link to her entry, that explains why and how it works. It ain’t hard, it is interesting, and we like her; we want everyone to play.

So these are the steps, and this completes them. We explain what she’s doing; we link to her entry; we encourage other people to do the same. You are encouraged, nay, urged. C’mon, it’s fun…

Oh, and then we ping Technorati, which will measure how far, how fast, etc.

There now, that wasn’t hard…

  1. I wouldn’t have suspected, if it weren’t for that little italicized line of text at the top of her entry.

  2. I didn’t even see it. I actually read the rest of the entry, but totally failed to see the italics. Doh. :)

  3. You are far too busy being a genius and a mighty author to be troubled with such tiny bits of text. Rightfully, that hypertext should send you an apology by week’s end, but you know what sort of manners hypertext have these days. (:

  4. It’s true. I’ll overlook it, though, being the magnanimous sort I am.

    Hey, you haven’t moved in the last year or anything, have you? I’ve got a copy of PHOENIX LAW to send you, as soon as I get my act together. :)

  5. Woo Hoo! Nope, as Leonardo Di Caprio was wont to say in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, “We’re not going anywhere.” I eagerly await packagement!

  6. ‘kay. One of my goals is to get books out the door next week. We’ll see if it happens. :)

  7. Hmm… I started posting this, then realized it wants me to submit some site (mine? The original poster?) to some indexing site, and I don’t want to have my blog indexed, and as I’m not even sure that’s the URL they want me to submit, eh. Two points of failure here, making sure it’s the original blog post that’s linked to, and knowing what to input at technorati.

    I think I’ll stick to simpler memes. I’m in ur LJ, typing in ur commentz!
