The Long Tail

There's a lot of talk going on about the 'head' and the 'long tail' here and here, for example. We're actually trying to address this issue with 49media - the Channels page focuses more towards the middle, whereas the New page is more of a 'tail' thing - where visitors can browse the newest weblog posts the server is finding, with no filtering on 'important' or 'headness'. And people coming into the site for one thing will automatically be exposed to other items from the middle and the tail - which will hopefully be a good experience for them and generate more interest in middle and tail things. I know I haven't turned my TV on in a very long time.
