long tail

Chris Anderson was generously sending out copies of his new book, The Long Tail, to people who have blogs. I've been sneaking a few pages in on my way to meetings. So far, pretty interesting and certainly one of those unifying ideas that have the strength of simplicity and clarity, though sometimes he seems to look for tails that I might not see.

Otherwise, it's got me thinking about China. A lot of the Chinese economy has not yet entered the "hit era" as Anderson describes it. A lot of products and services are only now becoming standardized with market leaders establishing strong, (inter)national brands. So what will technologies/companies/ideas serving the Long Tail do when they run into these Chinese trends in the opposite direction?
