I was curious to see if I was keeping up on the latest news on memes and memetics.

I did a Google search for meme and found 344,000,000 results.

Then I switched to Google News -- which is my reality check for testing whether proposals, concepts, ideas are making it into the real world. There were 223 results. That's right, as Steve Martin may have said in The Jerk --
two hundred and twenty three big ones

-- but in this case his supposition would be correct...only 223.

That has to be one of the highest reality to concept ratios in the world right now:

223/344,000,000 = 6.48 x 10^-7

Let's define that ratio as RTC and keep it in mind for other great ideas.
