What’s gossip about gossip?

Say there are 5 computers in a network (this is an arbitrarily low number, but for the purposes of an example it simplifies things to go with a low number).

When computer 1 wants to send a transaction for verification and consensus time-stamping on the network (the Hashgraph), it sends it to another computer, say computer 2. Then, computer 2 sends it to computer 3 while, at the same time, computer 1 sends it to computer 4. One of the computers then sends it to computer 5 and within basically 3 steps, the whole network knows what the transaction is and when it took place.

That’s the gossip side of things.
