If enough sites participate in the Meme Propagation experiment, I plan to offer a $1000 prize for the best analysis and visualization of the results — but only if we get at least 10,000 blogs participating. Let’s see how this develops over the next few days, and if enough sites participate then I’ll put my money where my mouth is on this one. I would really like to see some student projects that visualize the data in interesting ways. Perhaps this will help to spur the development of innovative ways to track the spread of ideas through cyberspace. I will invite a good panel of independent judges to determine who should get the prize.
