It suggests that the first electron could be found in a location consistent with classical mechanics. The reality is that from the very first dot you'll be seeing interference effects (this is the heart of the double slit experiment), although it's true it won't *look* like there's a pattern until you've accumulated many dots.
Anyway, my point is that GP had it right.
A minor point, but this:
The popularity of a cultural work is largely a result not of any inherent qualities of the work itself, but of of the activities of the audience.
...doesn't work with this:

Why do you "like" one piece of music more than another. Why do all your friends pass it along. It's because of something inherent in the "work itself", isn't it?
