I Love TechnologyI have whined in past posts about how in my youth I could find myself desperate for results from major sporting events, and have no means of finding them out, even events as large as the Wimbledon finals. I was totally dependent on local media, and if the event was not of major local interest, I was out of luck. The ultimate non-tail.
The long tail keeps extending. Some time ago I became quite happy with being able to go look at the Wimbledon web site, as an example.
But Meryl Yourish has just documented a most wonderful extension of the long tail. What if I want to know how some specific person is doing?
