A few links about the Internet, long tails and the like:
- Victoria Strauss on the rise and rise of e-book freebies
- Megan McArdle on the long tail in music
- Alex Massie on why what Megan says also applies to journalism
- And danah boyd on the non-feeding of trolls
Megan’s piece cheered me up no end as I now feel a lot less guilty about not knowing who the modern music stars are. And danah’s perhaps explains why I steer clear of a lot of the flame wars these days.
