I wrote about a phenomenon called “The Long Tail” over a year ago. At the time I focussed more on an article written by Joe Krauss than on the original article by Chris Anderson of Wired. Anyway, Anderson has since written a book titled “The Long Tail” which is attracting quite a bit of interest in the blogosphere. I haven’t read the book yet mainly because I have a couple books I haven’t finished yet and which I’d like to read before I buy another one and because if it has come out here it will be in hardcover and I think I should wait for a cheaper paperback to buy it (business is a little quiet …).
Rather than talk about the long tail phenomenon again, I thought I’d give you a couple links to some sites that reference the long tail in the event you are interested in it and would like to know more. Enjoy!
- The Long Tail 101;
- The Long Tail on Squidoo;
- Seth Godin’s recommendation of the book; and
- Anil Dash’s review of the book.
