Recognition, Fame and the Rollercoaster

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.
