It seems you’ve been mostly focusing on looking for/analyzing the LT phenomenon happening “within” an industry, like how TV viewing style has gone from 80/20 to 50/50, or DVD distribution channels from Blockbuster to Netflix.
Looking at the trend you describe in this post, maybe we could take a deeper look into what happens with increased varieties coming from choices “across” different industries or markets. For example, music sales might be down not because we are listening more to niche songs that don’t count for the music sales, but rather because of P2P. We might not be watching TV as much any more because it’s more fun to read blogs or play video games, and might not be buying newspapers/magazines because we can read them on line for free.
I just felt like if you throw in the factor of inter-industry interactions, the amount of “choices” we get will increase exponentially and maybe can observe LT in a bigger context. What can replace the mass is not necessarily the niche items in the same market, but rather something totally different from outside. Ah. I’m not wording it right, but hope you get the jist.
