What are the mechanisms of mass-mood-summation
in groups of humans- other than the obvious forms
of media and interaction?
Culture--books, libraries, hit songs, cds, mp3s, presidential speeches,  
sports, card games, tradition, holidays, weekends, religious preferences, the 
nightly news, gossip, the sunday new york times, sit-coms, the most forwarded 
emails, the most popular blogs, and something larger to which they all contribute 
and from which they all descend--the zeitgiest--the zeigeist of their time, 
the zeitgeist of their civilization, and the zeitgeists of individual 
subcultures.  Howard
