This Friday from 10:30-11:30am, I'm proud to announce that I'll be interviewing Chris Anderson, acclaimed Editor-in-Chief of Wired Magazine, and author of the profoundly influential New York Times bestseller The Long Tail: The New Economics of Culture and Commerce. He'll be appearing in-world in avatar form to chat with me and a live audience about the book, then signing copies of the virtual edition (an excerpt from the full print version.) Seating is limited, but open to the Resident public. To reserve a place, send an Instant Message to event coordinator Rodica Millionsofus by the end of Thursday.
I'm especially pleased to announce this event (and not because I'm an occasional contributor to his magazine), partly because Chris' thought has made its way to this blog before, first in the form of 3D models of the Long Tail created in Second Life by Csven Concord, and then in a post involving giant squirrels.
After the event, I'll be running an edited transcript on this blog, for those who couldn't attend but wanted to, and all those who would have wanted to, but learned about it too late-- and, of course, to all those who subsequently Google the term "long tail", months and years afterward. Demonstrating, in other words, the Long Tail effect with a Long Tail interview.
