Faster than the speed of bloggers...

There is a Graduate student tracking bloggers. Let's help him out. Click into his post and read all about it:
Measuring The Speed of Meme: An Experiment in which You Will Participate, Or Else...

Basically, he asks us to link to his post in the name of science. And asks us to spread the word by asking others to do the same... so do the same, okay? He will be presenting his results during the "Meet the Bloggers" panel at MLA 2006. I'm not really sure what MLA 2006 is, but some of you probably do. So, help a fella out, 'kay?

Here's what he needs 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 Technorati.

He is afraid that no one will participate in my experiment. Let's surprise him! Go out and speed on the meme!
