Media Mentions Group 6 “The demand for music beyond the hits seemed to be limitless. True, the songs didn't sell in big numbers, but nearly all of them sold something. And because these were just bits in a database that cost nearly nothing to store and deliver, all those onesies and twosies started to add up. What Vann-Adibé had discovered was that the aggregate market for niche music was huge, and effectively unbounded.” Anderson, Chris. “The Long Tail: Why the Future of Business Is Selling Less of More." U.S. News and World Report. 11 Jul. 2006. <www.usnews.com>.

What is an “aggregate market”? What other things can be aggregated?

“. . . alcohol use among high school students has fallen dramatically. The Monitoring the Future surveys conducted by the University of Michigan show that in 1991, 81% of eighth-, 10th- and 12th-graders had had at least one drink in their lives; by last year, the figure was only 58%. Roughly 47% of this cohort had been drunk at least once in 1991; in 2007 only 38% had ever been drunk. On college campuses, meanwhile, the ranks of nondrinkers are rising steadily.” Cloud, John. “Should You Drink with Your Kids?” The New York Times. 19 Jun. 2008. <www.nytimes.com>.

What is a cohort? Do you belong to a cohort?

“North Carolina was a perfect hideout. Wracked by Indian wars, yellow fever, and political upheaval, the poor colony could barely muster a weak militia and had no jails.” Bourne, Joel K., Jr. “Blackbeard’s Shipwreck Lives.” National Geographic. Jul. 2006. <www.nationalgeographic.com>.

What does it mean to muster something? How would youMedia muster Mentions: an army?
