Analysis of BitTorrent Files Illustrates the Long Tail

In case you haven't seen it yet, there is an interesting analysis of BitTorent distributions that shows a very very long tail. This analysis was done prior to the crackdown by the RIAA of Supernova and other of the top torrent distributors. I can't wait to see the followup a few months from now that will track usage after the shutdown of these major sites.

If only 4% contained 80% of the files, then the record company shutting down a small number of large sites can have a significant impact. Or, it's possible that the trend to 1 torrent file per site will continue and the addition of excellent search tools will allow users to find the files they are looking for even if it's only referenced on one site.

In case you've missed this article, be sure to check it out.

Anyone know of a good private tracker for the latest files? I currently use Torrentlounge but I am looking for anime and they only specialize in movies and music, looking for another place like Torrentlounge that has like 100,000 members like they do, the more members, the more seeders.
