Great analysis.
According to many user feedbacks I collected, the future challenge of Long Tail lies into personalized filtering. There is just too much to grasp in the tail, and without relevant filtering, users get often lost. Especially those who don’t have a clear idea of what they are looking for.

Frankly, I don't know what all of this talk is about. The truth is, it's a fat tail mate. See this theory at http://www.rabbitbites.com

I see consumers sharing with consumers, consumers making or customizing products, and consumers using free products to make and disrtribute still more free stuff...

to infinity.

I don't know how it all plays out, but I acquire most things now without any money, without working for them, or using them to generate money necessarily.

Using freeware and free hosting to reach a global audience who is also making and sharing free items: it's all too much for me to see or say.

But know this: the New Super Blogger will be a multi-media, multi-functionality offering. Podcasts, music mp3s, video posts, etc. will enable users to experience you in a variety of formats.

I find the long tail a very fascinating evolution and 'theory'. Personally, I think the dynamics of the long tail will reward those media players most that are best in matching 'seekers' with niche-media-products that fit them. The race is open on how this can be achieved... either trough algorithms (e.g. Google style), through people/communities (e.g. Flickr style) or a mix of both (e.g. Amazon style).

Warm regards from my last days in Chiang Mai... Alex
