We've Just Gone Meta

Va. Tech Gunman Sent Material to NBC

In between the first and second bouts of gunfire, the gunman posted source material to NBC.

Sit a moment with me and wonder at the meaning of it all. Way meta, dude. Way meta.

Is it (disturbingly) second order meta that the gunman apparently alluded to the movie Oldboy ?

OK, for us old fogeys (meaning those of us over 35), what the heck is "meta" in this context?

Meta- like beyond beyond. About the about. First derivative stuff. It is no longer the act on which we, or the actor was focused - but rather - it was about the act that he was focused. Press kit and all.
