A few people have asked me whether I’m going to repeat my Critical Reader’s Guide to The Long Tail with Chris Anderson’s new book Free. It’s nice to be asked, so thank you. And I am, of course, susceptible to bribes and flattery. But the answer right now is No. Three reasons:
- I don’t have a vendetta against the guy, so there’s no particular reason to go after him again.
- To be honest, I doubt that it will be interesting enough to spend that amount of time on.
- I don’t think the ideas will be as destructive as I think the Long Tail has been.
