Welcome to the Meme Agora

Pronunciation: 'mEm
Function: noun
Etymology: alteration of mimeme, from mim- (as in mimesis) + -eme
: an idea, behavior, style, or usage that spreads from person to person within a culture

Pronunciation: 'a-g&-r&
Function: noun
Etymology: Greek, from ageirein to gather
: a gathering place

Yes, I know that this is a profoundly pretentious name, but all the good ones that I wanted were already taken (like The Sound and the Fury or A Sip from the Firehose). So, this is as good as it gets.

This blog is intended to serve as an outlet for whatever happens to spill out of my head on a semi-daily basis -- a scary thought indeed. It will primarily focus on software development topics (like Java, .NET, Ruby, etc), but there's no telling what may come bubbling out at any time.

Fasten your seat belts -- it's going to be a bumpy ride.
