. . . Synergy!
Synergy is what happens when several things interact and what comes out is greater than the sum of the parts.
If you want a more formal definition, Wikipedia says:
Synergy is the interaction of multiple elements in a system to produce an effect different from or greater than the sum of their individual effects. The term synergy comes from the Greek word synergia συνέργια from synergos, συνεργός, meaning “working together”.
When I think of synergy, I think of a co-operative (worker, financial, housing, etc.), a family, a marriage (committed relationship of any sort). And now I think of the relationships we form in the blogosphere, where what we form contributes inspiration and encouragement to each other and to our readers, globally. I see how we are working together to make incremental changes in the world as it used to be, shaping the world as it is becoming.
Now I’m thinking that there must be ways to increase this synergy; make it more concrete in results. Any thoughts on that?
