Metcalfe's Law

Robert Metcalfe, the founder of 3Com and one of the creators of Ethernet, is credited with creating an equation that defines the value of networks:
V=N^2
In other words, a network's economic value equals the number of the network's users squared.
Putting Metcalfe's Law in simpler terms, it means that as you add users, its value increases geometrically.
