The Rich Get Richer.

What i understand from this reading, is that it acknowledges that networks don’t form hubs, hubs form networks over time. Like the way that the internet continues to grow and new nodes are formed. For example, first there was the networked media blog, then all of our blogs were created and linked from it, and now we continue to link out and between each other, and create now posts and pages, so the network becomes bigger, and the networked media blog becomes more like a hub, at least for our little network.

So, in short; Networks don’t emerge from disorder into order, they organise themselves as they build themselves and hubs form as networks have growth, and nodes have preferential attachment to hubs.
