Psync is the blog phenomenon of people (commenters) throwing out ideas that don't necessarily agree, but help them or the blogger arrive at a great idea (or answer) that probably wouldn't have happened without the comments section chat.

It can occur in general dialogue, but is more easily tracked in online forums.

It's the psychological version of the Hegel/Kantian philosophy thesis + antithesis = synthesis.
Thesis comment: Weird. McCain's VP pick has a baby, and the Daily Kos readers say there's a rumor that it was actually her daughter's.

Antithesis comment: But now they're admitting the daughter is pregnant, and Palin only had that other baby a few months ago.

Synthesis comment: Maybe the psync is that somebody leaked the anouncement, but got it messed up.
