Great post. I can definitely see this long-tail of niche communities gaining traction in the short-term.

Would you ancitipate any issues with etsy et al remaining vibrant in the long-term, once community norms and values have been entrenched by the long-term users?

Thanks Simon. I think the strength of Etsy is that it is so people focused and that it's actually a way for a group of people to make a living. That creates huge energy and dedication, in a way that feature-led offerings do not. Making a difference in someone's life is really difficult to do. However, if you can pull it off, the result can be remarkable.
