An example of resonance - EPIC

In Lesson #4 I talked about resonance. Here is a great example of resonance at work:The article talks about a flash movie created by journalists Matt Thompson (of The Fresno Bee) and Robin Sloan (of Current). The movie happens to be resonating with journalists, and journalists are spreading the word through articles. One of these articles appeared in my newspaper today, which is how I heard about the movie.

Having read the article, I watched the movie. I think the movie is fascinating, so now I am going to tell you about it. This is how resonance works. You can see the movie at this web site: You may want to watch how this web site's rank changes in Alexa over the next month or so.

Another popular flash site of a completely different nature is HomeStarRunner. Look at it in Alexa as well. It became this popular almost completely through word of mouth resonance.

Another popular flash site that resonated during the election: JibJab.com. In Alexa there are big spikes.

It's also interesting to see how the popularity of sites like the EPIC animation can be cyclical -- for a brief period a few months back, the film climbed to the top position in http://del.icio.us/popular, and only months later is it seeping into major media.

I guess it's the lesson there is that resonance doesn't necessarily increase steadily.
