Corporate memome

by Max Galkin

Dawkins writes that he introduced the term “meme” as analogue for “gene”: memes replicate themselves in the cultural pool like genes replicate themselves in the gene pool. So then, I think, companies should be referring to “corporate memome”, rather than “corporate DNA”. I assume, most companies are actually more interested in evolving the ideas in their internal meme pools, rather than in breeding better employee species.

Update: Wikipedia has an article Organizational memory. Perhaps, that is the same as memome.
