Hive Is The New Network

Hive Is The New Network


The value of being connected isn’t in being networked. It’s having an opinion and taking action toward an outcome. The hive is a smarter, evolved network that is bigger than the sum of its parts. The hive: 1) Increases the frequency of interactions. 2) Decreases friction between nodes and creates a higher level of synchronicity between members of the hive. This produces stronger ties between individual members and allows the hive to act collectively. A network’s value is traditionally tied to the idea of more—this is what’s known as a “network effect.” As we’re moving to be defined by the idea of more with less, hives will beat networks.
