Memetics on Wikipedia

Currently is the top hit for "Memetics" in prominent search engines.

The page makes for pretty strange reading. Aaron Lynch gets more mentions than Daniel Dennett. The section on "criticisms" consists of two brief paragraphs.

There's a whole section on whether the definition of meme refers to brain structures or artefacts/behaviors that doesn't seem to mention the possibility that memes might consist of information.

The is also rather strange. It's a good place to see how confused many people are about the topic.
