Ted Leung on the air: Open Source, Java, Python, and ...
Kathy Sierra has a piece on the "wake" created by plugins and other add ons.
Does your product or service support plug-ins and add-ons? Does it lend itself to follow-on products, accessories, support and training, etc.? Does it inspire others to be part of your wake?
This fits in really nicely with what I was saying about plugins and the long tail of features on Monday.
James makes another connection between wakes and long tails:
I don't know if the rhyme of metaphor was intended, but a Long Wake is a lot like a Long Tail.
Both James and Kathy's blogs are excellent reads, by the way.

<em> => _emphasized text_
<b> => *bold text*
Ordered list => consecutive lines starting spaces and an asterisk
