Hmm...

Assuming you have a piece of universally interesting news∗ and a gossip network† what distribution approaches are there that:
  • minimise the amount of time T80 that it takes 80% of the target audience to learn the news

  • maximise the eventual penetration of the news into the population P(informed)

  • minimise the maximum or mean number of redundant notifications that are received. Rmax, Rmean

that is: all people wish to hear it once, and all people are willing to redistribute it.
like LiveJournal, or more generically the Blogging Network.
