WTF is The Long Tail?

Long Tail Tall Tale

Long Tail important thing. Thag must grok idea to make idea work. It say that markets conversations. Wait, no – that cluetrain. Long Tail claim there new marketplace at end of rainbow. Blog believe rainbow exist, but nobody else care.

Long ago, before Internet, Anderson man had long tail on body. Got tired of lug tail everywhere, so put online for auction. Caveman in Iowa bought cheap. Gomesaur came, want Anderson tail – but Anderson no have. Gomesaur attack Anderson, say Long Tail no exist.

Anderson kill Gomesaur with it own long tail. Gomesaur go extinct. Indiana Jones dig up long tail bone in next sequel. It make good movie.

Decompressing

OMG, I don’t know where to begin. I have so many posts that need to be written, and so many emails that I need to respond to within the next couple of days. I love the Lockergnome community dearly, but I absolutely [insert stronger-than-love word here] the Gnomedex community – two separate communities with very little crossover. It will soon be time for me to elevate the Lockergnome brand to the Gnomedex level. I can’t wait. I’m drained, but (at the same time) energized. I’m tired, but (at the same time) fully aware. So many conversations, so many experiences, so many ideas, so many possibilities. Thank you, everyone.

Party, Party, Party

We’ve posted details on the Gnomedex parties today – although nobody has yet stepped up to the plate to sponsor Friday night’s event.

Thursday night, like last year, we are having early registration and a mixer at the Odyssey Maritime museum. There will be cocktails and food. It’s a chance to see where the conference center is and get to know the other attendees before Gnomedex gets into full swing.

Friday, we are having a party at The Museum of Flight – in The personal Courage Wing. Could there be a better spot to have conversations about technology, innovation, and talk of what is to come on Saturday’s event? The Personal Courage Wing will put us in the midst of personal stories of the innovative thinkers from the past. Poetically, this is perfect because that’s who the Gnomedex attendee is – an innovative thinker for tomorrow (living today). We are still in need of sponsorship for this party – as no company has yet stepped up to the plate to help make this happen (so we’re having to fund this night out of our own pocket).

Saturday, thanks in large part to Microsoft, the party is at The Experience Music Project and The Science Fiction Museum. And my personal favorite treat – Doubletake – an art exhibit, on display at EMP. Here’s an excerpt of their discription. “These pairings include Impressionist and Post-Impressionist works from masters such as Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Edgar Dégas and Vincent van Gogh with modern and contemporary works from such artists as Pablo Picasso, Mark Rothko, Jasper Johns and Roy Lichtenstein. We believe that these comparisons will give Impressionism a new context for modern audiences, resurrecting the power of the artists’ rebellious intent.” In case you didn’t know, Gnomedexers are the avant-garde.

Again, if your company is interested in sponsoring Friday’s party at the Museum of Flight, let us know ASAP. We still have a few other major sponsors to announce (to list alongside Microsoft, Yahoo!, Ask, GoDaddy, PRWeb, WeatherBug, and Waggener Edstrom). Each one of our parties is designed to facilitate and support conversation and interpersonal networking, FWIW.
