I said it would just be a few more weeks until the book was well and truly done and I could return my attention to this blog. Now that few weeks has become a month, and there's still one more week to go before I have to have the final marked-up pages and prettied-up graphics in. So it's still pretty busy here at Long Tail HQ, but the end is in sight.
Publication date is July 11th. Pre-orders available now (ignore the subtitle and cover image, which are both placeholders).
I should be properly back by the end of March. I'll start with about 60 links of interest and then update you on the latest data and research. It will be worth the wait, promise.
In the meantime, a few updates.
--I've bought longtail.com from my friends at Live365 who were, er, holding for me. (They had outbid me for in an auction with a mysterious Russian a year ago, but were great about selling it back to me at a fair price). It now resolves to this blog.
--I'm speaking next Friday at the M3 music conference/festival in Miami. Tons of cool bands..and me (come for the bands).
--I've also bought geekdad.com, where I plan to start a group blog focused on fun science/tech/math/engineering things to do with your kids, ranging from robotics to rocketry. Working motto: "Permission to play with cool toys isn't the only reason to have kids, but it's up there." Look for more in April.
See you soon!
