Time & Long Tails

Chris Anderson is at it again, this time talking about Google and the "Long Tail of Time".  His observation is correct: unlike a newspaper, Google tends to favour archive heavy searches.  Syntagma oberves that this is a side effect of how blogs automatically file things by date

Some markets are hit driven, but it seems as if Long Tail markets wouldn’t be.  Far be it from me to correct the inventor of the Long Tail concept, but isn’t the lack of time sensitivity simply one of many features of Long Tail markets? 

BTW, the most popular "old" posting on this blog?  Yup, you guessed it right! From February 11, 2006: The Voice Long Tail.
