LongTail background information

If you want to know what the ‘LongTail’ is check these links:
Wikipedia definition – Start here (geeks: network effect, bayesian network)
LongTail Blog – Great blog with nice diagram (used below)
My LongTail delicious tag – Follow my ongoing discovery

If you want to know why I’m posting this consider:
LearnDog
will exploit the longtail (and short head if necessary) to help kids.
The seed->select->amplify strategy starts in the long tail and
‘swims upstream, (uptail?)’ toward the short head.
