The Long Tail

A passing surfer alerted me to this Long Tail, providing random interesting bits of blogs at lower end of the long list sorted by “popularity”. Some people do think the “long tail” has much more significance/mass than the “short head”. And web publishing does allow a very very long tail of written stuff, instead of just those deemed worthy of publication by publishers.

  • Chasing The Long Tail – by Edward B. Driscoll, Jr on 7 Feb 2005 – about the power of the blogosphere long tail.
  • The Long Tail – by Chris Anderson in October 2004 Wired – about e-retailers wielding the power of the long tail of purchasers.
