9 Blog-to-book: “The Long Tail”

A series of very short videos on a well-known book that had previously been a blog. This “blog-to-book” example is the book, “The Long Tail.”

For example, the dedication text within the book, The Long Tail, begins:

“This book has benefited from the help and collaboration of literally thousands of people, thanks to the relatively open process of having it start as a widely read article and continue in public as a blog of work in progress.”

A more accurate description would be, “Speech to Article to Blog to Book”, but this too mirrors the academic process in many ways, with the addition of the blog step.
