A variable I am trying to imagine is the ratio of thought to the number of
words.  In the twitter medium (don't know the proper name for it) there are
few words but nearly zero actual thought behind it.  Here, more words but
also more thought.  What would we call that ratio?  Meme to text ratio?  Or
should it be the ratio of memes to time spent ingesting the memes?  The
internet chat group is better than television and twitter, but not as good
as. what?
