Supply and demand

“The 20th century was about sorting out supply… [t]he 21st is going to be about sorting out demand.”

Gavin Potter, quoted in This Psychologist Might Outsmart the Math Brains Competing for the Netflix Prize []

Won’t it be great when the computers are figuring out both the supply and the demand? The computer in my TV can decide I want to watch Gilligan’s Island reruns 24 hours a day and the networks computer can decide that Gilligan’s Island is the only TV show worth showing. Everyone will be happy!
