I'm probably closest to being a maven. But, I have rarely known myself to be part of any social epedimic, other than as a laggard or late majority. The internet might be the only thing that I adopted early, but I wasn't terribly knowledgable about it.
I hope to someday create something that will spread like a social epedemic, but I don't think that would necessarily make me a participant in the phenomenon that Gladwell describes. Still you can't spread something without it existing in the first place.
I keep telling myself every human being has inifinite and equal value. Maybe I'll believe it someday.
