GBS: Antitrust Disclaimer

I’ve had some private responses to my post on the economics of the pricing algorithm that suggest people may be making a bigger deal out of it than I intended. It’s not meant to represent my complete thinking (some of which is still unformed, anyway). The intended message was not “Grimmelmann thinks the pricing is completely okay,” or “Grimmelmann thinks transparency is absolutely central to the antitrust issues.” The algorithm itself is one small piece of a very large puzzle. I hope to be able to blog more about a few more of the antitrust pieces over the weekend, but, being realistic, D is for Digitize may well move from merely dominating my waking life to eating it entirely. I’ll do what I can.
