What is a “HiveMind”
(and why should I care?).
Bees are fascinating creatures. Not only does the individual bug have a surprising level of intelligence (or highly honed and developed instinct, if you prefer), but, a hive, consisting of tens of thousands of individuals will act as a single organism, to maximize its chances of survival.
The Internet, in a way, resembles that sort of community. Individuals, such as myself, post observations and meditations on a given subject, and, allow anyone to read and comment on them. The insights all work together to produce a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts…at least we hope so.
Opposing comments welcomed, but, spam, hate-speech and personal attacks will get deleted.
