The Long Tail of Place

As the geospatial web goes mainstream, I suspect we will wander the long tail of place, migrating beyond the usual points of interest covered in travel guides, following roads less traveled to unknown places that indulge our idiosyncrasies.

There are undoubtedly scores of small and unusual restaurants, bars, shops, museums, rivers, parks, and paths that will become more traveled thanks to Google Maps and the imminent mass annotation of physical space.

While we're on the topic, you might want to pre-order The Long Tail now, and grab The Adventures of Long Tail while you're at it.
