Meme Speed

How fast can a meme propagate across The Internets?
Acephalous is running a modest experiment to evaluate this question. You can help out!

Here’s what I need you to do:
1. Write a post linking to this one in which you explain the experiment. (All blogs count, be they TypePad, Blogger, MySpace, Facebook, &c.)
2. Ask your readers to do the same. Beg them. Relate sob stories about poor graduate students in desperate circumstances. Imply I’m one of them. (Do whatever you have to. If that fails, try whatever it takes.)
3. Ping Techorati.

Help him out! Give him a link.
