Linkages

Recently I’ve been thinking a lot about the digitization symposium that Michigan held in March, and in fact went back and watched a bunch of the archived webcasts over the weekend. So it was interesting to note while scanning through my blogroll today that Tim O’Reilly has expanded points made in the keynote address he gave at the conference into a more detailed, written analysis of how the “long tail” works in his Safari Bookshelf e-book service.

The article is interesting, just as the talk was, particularly from the perspective of visualizing the potential of digital books. (Though for the most breathless expression of that potential, Kevin Kelly still gets top marks [now behind the Times Select firewall, but ask me if you haven’t read it; I still have the hard copy].)
