Metromemetics was established in 1998 to follow news and trends about media design, information architecture, memetics, journalism and culture shift. This online resource is intended as an online repository and forum for students, instructors and professionals.

Since the site manager moved to New York City in the mid-2000s, NYC’s tech scene gets some attention here as well.
