Elspeth Rountree explains what a meme is

Elspeth_rountree_alessio_jaconaIt’s the end of september and the Web2.0 Expo 2010 is taking place in a rainy New York city. I had the chance to chat with Elspeth Rountree, who is senior producer, host, and co-creator of both Rocketboom Tech and Know Your Meme series.

In a four minute interview she brilliantly explains what memes are and how they “have gone from inside joke to marketing gimmick to worldwide cultural phenomena”.
