…k of drivers and riders also work as a turnkey resource that other services can be built on top of. For companies that operate as hives, sheer quantity matters less than it did for older generations of companies. By increasing interaction and decreasing friction between nodes, they accelerate growth through virt…
The size of your network isn’t what matters. Actually, I’m finding that larger networks are a liability in this hivemind model. Instantly receiving multiple instances of lower-quality information adds so much noise that it overwhelms good signal. And the current algorithms are too primitive to dynamically adjust quickly enough yet.
With this new model, you will want to carefully decide who is in your trusted network, although this creates a challenge for discovery and serendipity (e.g., the Facebook echo chamber problem). This is an important problem to solve!
