The GMPG can be explained as an experiment in Metamemetics. The first aim of Metamemetics is to create a structure of principles that foster the construction and propagation of elemental ideas.

XSLT is meant to change the form of XML, but you can also use it to perform analysis. In this tutorial, the second in a series, the MindMap team creates a system that enables them to pass parameters that not only determine the properties to analyze but also change the desired criteria using Web-based forms. And because it’s all in an XSLT stylesheet, the team can change the algorithm or output without recompiling the application.
