the audience is up to something

I like the script in The Long Tail video on YouTube:
.. from their side of the screen they studied us

wielding weapons which we ourselves provided

we offered free choice but all they heard was free

they have tasted power and there are a lot more of them than there are of us

The Long Tail is the name of a blog and book by Chris Anderson, editor of Wired magazine.

Related notes from my delicious longtail tag:
  • the reduced significance of capital means that the cost of entry is lowered in many industries
  • quality beats quantity, pick the blogs that you like
  • erosion of mainstream taste and the growing importance of niche markets
  • We can rely on natural benevolence and on the extraordinary powers of technologically-produced economies of scale to bring us what is useful and convenient
  • triumph of the niche
