Thanks, though it's sort of unrelated. Or in a deep way (gatekeepers), maybe not.

The definition of power law that Seth cites comes from this JOHO thread, which started as a discussion between Weinberger and a Berkman staffer about the merits of the long tail. My larger comment was that I have no problem with marketers coming up with visual metaphors for aggregated/collective voices-- "mosaic" for example. But the derivation of the "long tail" has to be acknowledged. Nobody on JOHO (present correspondents excepted) followed up on this point, so it will generally be lost.
