The herding instinct...

Fascinating and amusing illustration of the tendency for people to herd or swarm. Raises questions about motivation and reward where people flock to follow or support a particular cause or product. People like to belong. Early adopters/pioneers are risk-takers. The swarm effect becomes part of the product's appeal. The internet and modern communications technologies accelerate and expand the phenomenon dramatically.
