You've found Father McKenzie. But are you really looking for Eleanor Rigby?

Re: [youthmultimedia] Synod Wireless Access

To paraphrase John Lennon:
Imagine . . .
Imagine there's no e-mail,
It's easy if you try,
No 'net to link us,
And definitely no wi-fi,
Imagine all the people
Writing it by hand...

Imagine there's no mobiles,
It isn't hard to do,
No-one to phone or text to,
No ring-tones too,
Imagine all the people
Speaking face to face...

Imagine no television,
I wonder if you can,
No need for radio or newspapers,
Abolishment of ads,
Imagine all the people
Sharing of themselves...
You may say I'm a Luddite,
but I'm not the only one,
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will meme* as one.

The word "meme" in the final line replaced the original "live". What is a meme?
