Talent is not universal, but it’s widely spread:  Give enough people the capacity to create, and inevitably gems will emerge.
    —    Chris Anderson
From his book:  “The Long Tail
[This is why I’ve always favored the PC over the mainframe and the PC over Apple:  give the tools to the masses of people and the Mozart’s will emerge.  Restrict opportunity by monopoly (Apple) or access (mainframe) and we never reach the potential of human creativity.  We are more likely to find Mozart with 7 billion people typing on 7 billion PCs than we are with 7 billion people constrained by the use of only limited access on a single mainframe.  Yes, we will have more drudge to filter in order to find the Mozart, but in the end, they will emerge.    —    kmab]
