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 couldnt 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.
