The Long Tail: The dangers of "Headism"


(image from flickr: Project 404)

"In these speeches I've been riffing on the dangers of 'headism', the mistake of assuming that the economic incentives and other forces that dominate at the head of a demand curve apply equally down the tail.

'Long Tail' is the new buzzword to live by. Mice and monkeys have long tails, and they are mammals.

Safety first, citizens. Safety first.
