“Would you like fries with that?” is not only how students with technical majors mock their liberal arts peers, it is an example of the suggestive marketing that has long been commonplace in fast food restaurants. Now, the concept of suggestive marketing has exploded into a whole new dimension. Shop on a cloud-based marketing site like and purchase composer Bear McCreary’s Caprica soundtrack (see our discussion with Bear in Chap.  9), and the site will also offer you links to every CD he’s ever released, CDs that other shoppers who have purchased his material have purchased, and, oh, here’s a book about Caprica, and one about Battlestar Galactica as well.
