The Memechart

That’s my next project. I’m going to attempt to create a massive chart detailing which memes spread from which hubs, how they’re related, trends, the works.

Wish me luck.

I’m going to require some assistance. Contribute by listing memetic hubs and parent memes and things like that.

tell me some specifics of what you need and ill try and do some digging

I need memetic hubs. Like 4chan, Youtube, and Viral media. Here’s a super-rough Powerpointed version.

The toughest part here is going to be arranging the hubs to accommodate everything. Perhaps Venn diagrams aren’t the way to go…

Have you thought about making this with ? Might be a little hard to make it exactingly laid out, but would definitely be pretty neato to zoom around in.

However it’s done, +1 this idea.

With venn diagram circles, overlaping may prove hard. I wish you lukc in this, it would be a great help to the site. I’ll try to help if I can.

I like this.

What I’d really like to do this on is some kind of online flowchart thing. Like a multi-branching bubble chart. Like K’nex, but label-able. If anyone knows a site like that, that would be great.

This is the site of the future Memechart. You can watch it grow.

Not bad, Jack.
Great initiative.

Brilliant work so far, well done!

EDIT: maybe you could do without those first two bubble, and just have the hubs (youtube, 4chan etc.) spreading out from the centre.

Nice work! it looks much cleaner and more professional now.

Awesome project, CandleJack! Mind if we spotlight it frontfeed? can’t wait to see how this pans out

I think you should put all of the popular sites like: youtube, 4chan, etc. and then have the meme’s coming out of them like a family tree or something…

The problem with this sort of project is the complicated fact that so many memes come from a combination of sources. For instance, you’ve got “Slowpoke” under 4chan. That’s where it was made into an Internet meme, but then it also is a character from a video game/cartoon show. I doubt that there’s any simple two-dimensional graph that can show those sorts of relationships when there are so many of them in so many different permutations.

Great work so far, gentlemen. Relevant to my interest.

People have been sending me requests on Pearltrees asking to team up on the MemeChart.

The problem is, I don’t know who they are. If you’ve sent a team-up request, or want to, pm me so I know who you are. I’m not going to let just anyone edit this thing.
