The `why' of such things are the grist of the subject for me right
now, as a memeticist. Why does communication breakdown? How can I
predict how communication might break down, and take steps to improve
the protocol or CRC-check the encoded intended signal? These are
fairly important things that don't oft get explored in memetics.
