In the "[ Long Tail]," from Chris Anderson's Wired article, if you have pricing based on popularity then you raise the price of a product by buying it, and undiscovered products are the best deal.  The web's expansive quality comes from the tools and flexibility given to the purchaser.  It's very efficient, and it increases revenue through increased availability.  How refreshing.  The "economics of scarcity" from the article, reminds me of evil commodities trading practices where the less of a necessary thing there is, the more valuable it becomes.  In The Long Tail, If hits were still pirated, perhaps the misses would compensate.  Even though the hits still are more expensive, the Tail becomes the more just side of the market - the limit of price as material approaches unique to your interests= free..

The 8 "generatives" of value could all be gleaned from the databases of facebook ad friendster and the like.  I wonder if they will do that.  Alternately, what if information preferences demonstrated by user pathways could be recorded as they were selected and pathways through the internet could be demonstrably well worn or less traveled?  Like people who feed home generated power back into the power grid, preference services (which contain the value of the 8 generatives) would be paid for by being used.  But is all profit negated by compensating people for shopping?  Shopping would be tantamount to filling out a survey.  Maybe you would only get points if your choices ended up having predictive value.
