The Katrina Aid Meme
Friday, 2005 September 2 - 10:10 pm
I've been trying to think of the best way to exploit the power of the blogosphere to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina, and I think I've got an idea. (Updated 14 September 2005, 8:23 AM EDT.)

We bloggers wield a lot of power.

Now, as individuals, our blogs are puny little things that reach a small handful of people. I have perhaps just thirty or forty regular readers. But as a collective, bloggers are a formidable force. We can take an idea and spread it, in a chain reaction, to tens of millions of people. This effect has a particular name, and it's something familiar to a lot of bloggers: it's a meme. It's essentially a self-propagating bit of information.

Often, Internet memes are simple tidbits of entertainment. They're harmless, fun, and social. For example, you might create a list of "five weird things about me", then tag five other people to create the same list. You'll see this kind of thing a lot on personal blogs; authors use them as a way to reveal something about themselves, and to get to know other people better.

But I figured, why not take this concept and turn it into something useful? And thus, I give you the Katrina Aid Meme. Though I've already contributed to disaster relief for Hurricane Katrina, I think this could potentially have a greater impact.

Here's how it works:

- If you create a link to this article (http://www.realkato.com/C1700736860/E835232130/index.html) on your blog or web site, and then enter a comment or a trackback below to let me know where you've done it, I will pledge $5 to the American Red Cross for Katrina relief.

- If you also replicate this meme on your web site, pledging a donation yourself for everyone who links back to your site, then I will pledge an additional $5 towards Katrina relief. Of course, if you decide to do this, you can set whatever monetary amounts and limits you're comfortable with.

I'll do this for each blog that participates, up to a maximum of $250 $500. I'm hoping that with the power of the Internet, I'll be able to hit this target within a week. And I'm hoping that most people choose the replication option, so that this idea gets spread as widely as possible, and we end up raising tens of thousands of dollars.

Come on, folks. Let's show what a powerful force for good we can be.

UPDATE: I've hit my $500 target. Thank you all so much for participating. Feel free to continue linking and keeping the meme alive!

Update 1 and evidence of first $200 donated here.
Update 2 and evidence of remaining $300 donated here.

and

http://www.xanga.com/item.aspx?user=Skyatmidnight&tab=weblogs&uid=345003818

And finally, I also posted about it in my Facebook profile. It isn't a blog, but I hope it spreads the word.
