"Fast trends get all the attention; slow trends have all the influence."

Reminds me of the technology expression:

"We overestimate change in short term, and underestimate it in the long term"

Trends = behaviour in the short-term, behaviour in the long term = normal

Trends get noticed because they are a deviation from the norm, and human beings are hard wired to notice differences. In a market that is dominated by long-term behaviour influence is the most important tool of change. Subtle but important difference
