The Long Tail

If you haven't already read it, this article, The Long Tail by Chris Anderson, Wired's Editor-in-Chief, is likely to change your life. OK, maybe not, but Chris makes some extremely compelling arguments with a wealth of insight. He describes and elaborates on the unique ability for e-businesses like Amazon.com to take advantage of "long tail" consumer demand economics in opposition to traditional, hit-driven economics. Although Chris doesn't talk about it, my intuition tells me there are some significant insights to be had here for software distribution in relation to open source.
