Will Hearst will be in conversation with Chris Anderson of Wired Magazine. The topic will be Chris Andderson's new book, The Long Time Tail (http://www.thelongtail.com/)
A new economic principle is the "the long tail," discovered and named by the editor of Wired magazine, Chris Anderson. The former dominance of best-sellers has been augmented by the new dominance of innumerable tiny-sellers, thanks to the Internet. Investor and publisher Will Hearst notes that there is a time dimension as well to the long tail phenomenon, still being discovered.
This conversation is part of The Long Now Foundation's Seminar About Long-term Thinking, usually held on the second friday of every month. Please note that we have changed our location for this month; we will be in the spacious Palace of Fine Arts Theater.
