      "Here are ten reasons why Mark Cuban is today's Long Tail hero:

      1. He's retrofitting all the Landmark cinemas, which he owns, for
      digital projection. This not only dramatically lowers the costs of
      getting films into theaters and ups their projection quality, but will
      also potentially open that distribution channel to independents who
      can't afford to print hundreds of huge rolls of acetate and truck them
      around.
      2. He's promoting HDTV the right way, by commissioning and
      distributing content.
      3. He's funding the Grokster defense.
      4. He's a real blogger, warts and all.
      5. He says that he won't use the broadcast flag.
      6. He got the idea of reinventing TV a decade ago, and his work
      lives on in Yahoo!'s excellent video search and music video services.
      7. He doesn't believe the RIAA.
      8. He sent a team to cover the Iraq elections, live, in high-def.
      9. He has a successful reality TV show.
      10. He really gets the Long Tail: "Popular items are just that,
      popular. My guess however is that in absolute numbers, the long tail
      of the download distribution curves, both in terms of number of songs
      and in number of songs downloaded, overwhelm the number of copyrighted
      songs illegally being downloaded."
