The Power Of Math

In The Power of Sync, Seth says:

100 people doing something at the same time has far more power than 300 people doing it over time.

I can see how this could make sense… but I can also see how it makes no sense. I’m no math expert but…

If 100 people buy your product at $100 at the same time, you’ve got $10,000. (You know, if your servers/systems/staff, can handle that load.)

If 300 people buy your product at $100 over the course of 3 days, you’ve got $30,000. (You’ve also got 3 times the number of customers now, which could come in handy in the future.)

Like I said, I’m no math expert… so maybe someone can explain to me why this is wrong.
