Everyone seen those spontaneously synchronizing metronomes?


I have a feeling this also explains part of trends such as who uses what software and fashion trends. Which is network effect in depth really.

But spontaneous synchronization also explains where counter culture movements come from. Kinda like heart attacks, a different section of society pulsing in a different beat.

Not sure if this info is useable for better adoption of fediverse tech?

At very least it presents a problem for FedExpansism on Reddit. We convince 1 Redditor to join and then they leave Reddit. But we need them to stay on Reddit so we’re not just 1 Firefly in the dark. 1 Firefly will only convince the extremist fireflies, but 1000 fireflies will be able to convince normies.

Prob useable for protest organization, since it directly applied to firefly synchronization
