Random ideas for Meme T-shirts

This page is a forum for faculty to post ideas/suggestions in a form that everyone can see them. We may ultimately decide that another, more bidirectional, method is better. Such as email!

  • Picture sharing sites used by members of a target market could be a quick way to survey what people are interested in. Image search, with some coaching, can find images of people wearing T-shirts. It may be possible to use some beta software from Google or others to look for similarities among images, and in that way perform simple frequency counts. This will be a lot easier than scouring videos or physically walking around multiple cities, although each method is worth using as a check on the other methods.
  • How long does a meme last? Identify 10 to 50 memes of interest, then use online tools to count how often they are mentioned on specific web sites, week by week.
