There is a story here, Elliotte. The story is
that HP is experimenting with a technology that
traces idea emergence along some line of cited
or uncited mentions, and that some ideas are
obvious. On the other hand, the exact use of
certain phrases in articles and books without
citing originals is also detectable. Newspapers,
universities and journal publishers will be
grateful for it and use it to determine when
students are doing less than quality work and using
less than quality sources.
Blogs will receive a quality ranking. That's all.
Memes are a concept to make uncited references
appear to be natural. Memes are voodoo, more
of the pseudo-science, poor scholarship and
marketingese over research that made the 90's the
decade of the gullible.
