As you will begin to see in future LearnDog posts and podcasts, I have been thinking a lot about Recognition and the LongTail. I just saw THIS POST
from Adam Curry about the pros and cons of life in the public eye which got me thinking. Too much recognition could be a bad thing (at least if you don’t think about the consequences first). Think of it this way:
FAME: more than 150,000 subscribers (or listeners, viewers, readers, fans) – Short Head, Mainstream, Amplify.
SUCCESS: 150 – 150,000 subscribers (etc) – Magic Middle, Select.
PARTICIPANT: less than 150 subscribers (etc) – Long Tail – six (6) is a ‘magic number’, Seed.
