I agree that many companies (online retailers in particular) seem to think that only course of action to take in response to the long tail is to become an aggregator. Instead of taking advantage of the freedom to specialize, they're trying to hit as many niche markets as possible.

Chris Anderson


There was no tail on the cover, at least in the US version. Perhaps you're thinking of one of the international editions?
