Glass orb with reflection of the landscape in it

Alex Iskold (Readwrite web) looks at people in the “Long tail”, primarily from a financial point of view. He makes several useful points; that those that join the blogosphere (much the same as Second Life, or any real life community) often have to work much harder to gain the same respect/ money/ whatever, than those who were there at the outset.
There are some useful comments – some have commented that not everyone starts to blog purely to make money. Quite possibly it’s the minority. Others have commented that minority interests (e.g Educational Bloggers) have a much smaller community base. So though they’re still in the “long tail”, it’s not nearly such a mammoth beast.
