Nick Tomaino of 1Confirmation posted a great article recently, talking about the importance of memes to cryptocurrencies.
Memes transcend language. I heard something back in school that people in villages who don’t have access to the internet can still pick up on the emotions of a foreign song. I think memes do the same thing. I think it’s the same reason why Mr. Bean is a universal tv show and many regional soap operas are stuck to their region. I used to dismiss them as silly or stupid but there’s something so basic and primal about them, that a human doesn’t have to think to even process them.
Couple of questions.
- Why do you think memes are so powerful (what about human nature or our culture makes them so powerful at communicating)
- What’s your all time favorite meme?
