There’s a new (but old meme) making it’s way around the web via Facebook Notes/status, Forums, Blog posts and comments.
The game is nothing more than printing a quote from a book according to some rules and passing it along.
Here’s a quote from me:
“Suppose we do another version of the calendar analysis we did in the previous chapter with hockey players, only this time looking at birth years, not birth months”
* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence along with these instructions in a note to your wall.
* Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST
Where did this start?
Why are we all passing it on?
What interesting data is there in all this?
What’s the mostly widely kept at our sides book right now?
What about this meme works where others haven’t?
