Today’s Marketplace section was a target-rich environment.Verizon fights net neutrality rule (forbidding linking pricing to use).  Instagram pictures advertising.

But fashion putting a price on crystal-ball gazing was too good to miss.  And thoughts of regression towards the mean, or introducing sameness into fashion based on the numbers.  If everybody has the same access to the future, who’s going to be fashionably different?  Time-value of information?
