See The Constitution of Society, Cambridge, England: Polity Press, 1984. D. Cohen and R. Axelrod message senders will take that into account, perhaps by choosing content that is more neutral or guarded if the DL membership is heterogeneous. At the same time, a larger group is seeing messages that are identical and at nearly identical times. The effect of this, as intended in the DL-founding, is to produce a wider base of shared knowledge among the DL-members. Over time their internal communication should become more efficient as shared assumptions and background increase.

The effect of this, as intended in the DL-founding, is to produce a wider base of shared knowledge among the DL-members. Over time their internal communication should become more efficient as shared assumptions and background increase. As the DL becomes used, an important effect of its existence may occur among those who are not members. The name will appear in cc: fields of messages they receive. They may find themselves addressing it, perhaps without being sure just who is in it. Whether this will happen may depend in part on the name that was chosen.

Are the magnetic poles of particles oriented like those of their near neighbors or are they disarrayed? ) However, the social issues that can involve many of the same dynamics do not seem remote. (Do similar transactions across the economy take place at one price or many? Does animal husbandry improve the agricultural value of an animal population? Does an infection -- or use of the Internet -- become endemic in certain subpopulations? ) What can be observed here is one fundamental reason that the approach is relevant: the occurrence in social systems of dynamic patterns analogous to those of other systems -- physical, biological, and computational.
