Sounds like a muffy character out of an English novel :)

Chris,

Thanks for asking.

Higgins is the name of the “long-tailed” mouse. The trust framework can
be used to enable new groups to self-organize and to aggregate across
existing groups, or in other words to organize “the long tail.” Recently
there has been a lot of talk at conferences and in the press about the
power of “the long tail”. Most population distributions have a long tail
whose needs historically couldn’t be met because it was too expensive.
Digital technology allows the needs of “the long tail” to be addressed
efficiently. The Higgins mouse has a proportionally long tail.

We have added your question to our FAQ list in the Higgins Project of the
Eclipse Website. See www.eclipse.org/higgins.

Cheers,

Mary
