Metcalfe’s law

Metcalfe's law (Father of Ethernet) states that the value of a telecommunications network is proportional to the square of the number of connected users of the system. Metcalfe's Law is related to the fact that the number of unique connections in a network of a number of nodes (n) can be expressed mathematically as the triangular number n(n − 1)/2, which is proportional to n2 asymptotically (that is, an element of Θ(n2)).

Think outside of the box for the moment and apply Metcalfe's Law to your own personal business networking (perhaps best illustrated in the Linked In application)

Aside from the obvious technological advancement espoused by Metcalfe's law, what if you applied Metcalfe's law in your own personal network, i.e. meet twelve people and according to the application of Metcalfe's law, connect 66.
