What do you MEME?

We are all out here being a living, breathing, walking and talking memes. This week’s topic on meme warfare has really opened my eyes to what a meme actually is, or at least how I see it from my perspective. This week I’ve created a SoundCloud, which is the result of a conversation I had with my fellow bcm112 classmates. After this week’s tutorial (Tuesday 10:30 is superior), I found myself a lot more open to the topic and what it means. This changed the way I view memes forever. 

Through the platform, I was able to really express my views on this week’s topic and be able to communicate it with my friends as a way to share views and experiences. Originally the conversation was made over a zoom call, which I deconstructed through GarageBand adding some background tunes and made into a SoundCloud track. Enjoy.

This is a great blog post! Your opening sentence had me immediately invested.

“We are all out here being a living, breathing, walking and talking memes.”

I think this is a great example of the way that meme warfare is a kind of information manipulation that is so prevalent our rapidly evolving social media environment.

I also love the way you used your experiences in BCM112 as a remediation this week. It speaks to the importance of using FIST (Fast. Inexpensive. Simple. Tiny) principles in content creation. It’s also a great example of collective intelligence!

I explore similar ideals of meme warfare in my own blog post which you can read here: https://caseyscreativepursuits.wordpress.com if you’re interested. I also thought you might enjoy this article: https://www.act.nato.int/images/stories/media/doclibrary/open201706-memetic2.pdf which explores meme warfare in depth. Again, great blog!

Hey tori,
Already love the name of this weeks topic because it reminds me of the ‘what do you meme” game, ‘We are all out here being a living, breathing, walking and talking memes.’ is such a powerful message and show the manipulation that memes have on society today. This weeks remediation is great, you turned a normal conversation into a song. ‘memes are everywhere’ ( and that’s a fact!)
great work.
