…wasn’t expecting this… Well, every now & then, there’s a huge buzz around memes and if you’re on the marketing blogosphere, chances are you’ve been memed already. What is a Meme?
A meme is a set of questions that are passed from person to person. You fill out the questions. Post them on your blog. Then you tag another blogger who is supposed to do the same thing – via Mark Cuban
Memes have their detractors (like Cuban) who believes that:
“It has the same intellectual resonance as doing The Wave at an event. You are embarrased if you do it sober; belligerant to non wavers if you do it drunk.”
LOL! Anyways, I think it’s harmless community building and when Ann tags me there’s no way I can avoid it.
So here are 4 things about me that you probably don’t know:
1. Taking a cue from David’s meme, let me add that the first job I’ve had in the USA was at Taco Bell, and have never been to one since then 🙂
2. I’ve got to confess my inner geekiness. Having lived in India most of my life, I started my career as an electronics engineer, transitioned to being a software developer (legacy applications, COBOL, etc…) and finally found my calling in marketing and evangelism.
3. I hate Bollywood movies (imagine watching Grease, over and over again), but love Bollywood music.
4. I’m a huge cinephile, as you may have guessed from many of my film centric posts (Snakes on a Plane, Borat). Favorite directors include Kurosawa, Fellini, Mallick, Burton, and so many more.
