Chris Anderson @ Telecosm
Chris Anderson was up next ... I saw him speak at eTech a while back. I actually sat next to him at eTech before he spoke ... although I didn't know it until he got up to speak.
He gave his Long Tail presentation, and there were some updated details. It's a insightful presentation that talks about one way that the Internet is allowing more companies to exploit the "long tail" ... the vast market that exists outside of the high-volume markets.
As he progressed through his thoughts, he brought up his Set of Three Forces ... something that I had forgotten:
- Force 1: Democratize the production
- Force 2: Lower the cost of consumption
- Force 3: Connect consumers
I like to think about this in the context of Agilix Labs and what we can offfer to students. Force 1 and Force 3 seem to be the easiest to pursue.
