Memetics is an approach to interpret, understand and possibly manage communication and knowledge evolution in a Darwinistic way. Meme Media are implementing Memetics. IntelligentPad has been the earliest Meme Media middleware. Webble Technology is the most recent form of IntelligentPad. Webbles are objects in a browser window that allow for direct manipulation by drag and drop. One may pick up any Webble and move it over any other one for operational combination. The new Webble is plugged into the previous one and data between them flow through predefined slots. Human users may reconfigure the slot connections of Webbles as desired. The concepts and the technology are setting the stage for new ways of human communication including playful learning. Webbles at the human users' fingertips allow for exploration and explanation by direct manipulation, for collaboration as well as for competition, and for trial and error investigation.
