Memes: A History

Since ancient Egypt, pictures that convey an idea have always been a staple of our civilization, and it seems they've taken on even greater relevance today.

In fact, it's gotten to the point that a huge part of every new technology is usually converted, in some way, to serve the needs of memes.

When the printing press first became important in Europe, the first newspapers carried memes (which were called political cartoons at the time). When colour printers were invented, the very first thing we used them to do was make even more colourful political cartoons.
