No one’s coming. It’s up to us. – Dan Hon – Medium
Dan Hon | Medium
One of the ways people think about and illustrate Metcalfe’s Law is by understanding that a telephone or fax machine isn’t particularly useful on its own (the examples go to show how comparatively old the law is), but that two are much more useful. Four even more so, and so on. These understandings are a bit like folk understandings.
Lately, Metcalfe’s law has been applied to social networks and not just to equipment that’s connected together. Applying Metcalfe’s law to social networks is a sort of folk understanding that the more users your social network has, the more valuable it is. If you value value, then, the law points you in the direction of increasing the number of your users.

The problem is, I like to ask dumb questions. Asking dumb questions has served me well in my career. Asking dumb questions in this case means I have two simple questions about the law:
First: why do we call Metcalfe’s law a law? Has it been proven to be true?
Second: What do we mean, exactly, by value?

為什麼打掃不完?因為你做錯了4件事
1. 其實整理和打掃是兩件事。
2. 整理不是把不需要的物品移動到衣櫥或櫃子裡,眼不見為淨就是整理,整理是「把不需要的東西從居住空間中除去」
3. 從最容易的地方下手,收拾那些不會讓自己哭哭啼啼、淚眼汪汪的東西
4. 懷特建議,從客人視角檢視家裡
