  27. 27. The theory of The Long TailThe Long Tail ((Chris AndersonChris Anderson)) is that our culture and economy is increasingly shifting away from a focus on a relatively small # of “hits” (mainstream products and markets) at the head of the demand curve, and towards a huge # of niches in the tail. As the costs of production and distribution fall, esp. online, there is now less need to lump products and consumers into one size fits all containers. In an era without the constraints of physical shelf space and other bottlenecks of distribution, narrowly targeted goods and services can be as economically attractive as mainstream fare.
