Meme-Rider Media Team

An international media team formed in Anchorage, Alaska in 1999 by artists and writers Sarah Lindisfarne, Zephyr Quiettus, Joelle Howald, Isaac Boatright, Nathan Shafer, Tommy Folan and F. Austin Love. Based on the concept of memes as ridable and/or hijackable phenomenae.

The Meme-Riders have designed cryonic machines which can also make ice cream, illustrated meat charts of fantasy animals for butchers, sold human souls as works of art in a gallery, and installed anarchist love letter/book marks in library books.

There is a Meme-Rider "autonomous co-ed secular scout troop for all ages" with over 200 merit badges such as Zombie Survival, Cracker Crafts, Black Hole Poetics, Alien Abduction Awareness and Dumpster Diving.
