  10. 10. Organize <ul><li>Femalehiphop.net </li></ul><ul><li>(Femalehiphop.net is a platform and a network for all female hip-hop activists and intends to call females from all over the world to get in touch with each other, to exchange ideas and to support the movement.) </li></ul><ul><li>http://groups.yahoo.com/group/hiphopfeminism/ </li></ul><ul><li>(HipHop Feminism is an egroup born out of the Hip Hop and Feminism Conference in Chicago IL, April 7-9, 2005. To continue the dialogue and to nurture ACTION on the issues addressed at the conference, this egroup will serve as a sounding board and network center to share ideas, events and programs.) </li></ul><ul><li>B-Girl Be: A Celebration of Women in Hip-Hop </li></ul><ul><li>(&quot;The B-Girl Be event is an all encompassing female inspired Hip-Hop event that touches on all aspects of Hip-Hop, with emphasis on showcasing female graffiti writers and the community issues that we as women involved in Hip-Hop face. B-Girl Be focuses on the ever growing, conscious, socially aware, powerful and positive group emerging and taking their rightful throne: Women in Hip-Hop. I am eagerly anticipating what the B-Girl Be 2006 conference has on deck.”) </li></ul>
  11. 11. Distribution Model <ul><li>Anderson argued that products that are in low demand or have low sales volume can collectively make up a market share that rivals or exceeds the relatively few current bestsellers and blockbusters, if the store or distribution channel is large enough. The Long Tail is a potential market and, as the examples illustrate, the distribution and sales channel opportunities created by the Internet often enable businesses to tap into that market successfully. </li></ul>
