Synchrony in Blogspace

I wrote about bloggers being ants without realizing that Joi Ito and others were having similar thoughts almost at the same time: synchrony in blogspace.  Individual thoughts, shared in the past over blogs, combine to become the environment itself like the sky and the weather over ants, gently coaxing all of us to have same thoughts at the same time.  Come to think of it, intellects may be as vain as people who feel compelled to follow the latest fashion.
