- n. The condition of being self-synchronized
Sorry, no etymologies found.
One last note: Because a track on a disk contains a continuous stream of data bits, Apple drives were designed from the beginning to use "self-synchronization" to be able to tell one byte from the next.
Wozniak's technique would allow the drive to do self-synchronization
This is the only the latest example of self-synchronization occurring in nature, but not the first.
Compare this with a different kind of synchronization, self-synchronization (synchronization with your self), when you eat in a hunger-driven manner.
With the advent of social software to manage social interactions, form ad hoc groups, close decision loops, and enable self-synchronization behaviors, leadership qualities that had been unmanageable intangibles for so long can be measured, improved, and taught in a way that was never before possible.
Furthermore, by providing metrics of responsiveness, connectedness, loop closing, and peer ratings, not only would shared awareness be increased but new forms of self-synchronization would emerge.
With the wide-scale adoption of RFID and mote technologies for tracking physical assets in real time, and the enormous strides in information sharing, improved awareness, collaboration, and self-synchronization demonstrated by the war in Iraq, the time is not so distant when leadership roles will be measured and tracked digitally and become an integral part in how networked organizations are managed.
