Don’t ever miss a performance by the French-Canadian circus company if you have a chance! Their visual performances are stunning and set the standards for all other performance based events. They have played for over 60 million spectators in 130 cities over the last years. They have even become a business case in the bestselling “Blue Ocean Strategy” (see below).
They are coming to Stockholm for the first time on Sept 28-29 with their new show Delirium. Tickets on sale from March 28.
The international bestseller “Blue Ocean Strategy” is now translated into its 37th language, Mongolian. Will the book’s blue ocean metaphor appeal to Mongolian readers, given that Mongolia is the world’s second-largest landlocked country (after Kazakhstan)? Are there enough Mongolian readers? (my initial refelction). Before deciding that translation was probably valuable according to Chris Anderson’s theory of the long tail, I decided to check up the Mongolia wiki.
Here is what I found: Mongolia is the nineteenth largest country in the world, but also the least densely populated. Approximately thirty percent of the country’s 2.8 million people are nomadic or semi-nomadic. The capital is Ulan Bator, with an population of 988,500. The cabs in Mongolia are yellow.
OK, not a huge group of potential readers. But, the wiki tells me, the number of people speaking Mongolian is close to 5.7 million. No long-tail excuse needed. I apologize for my ethnocentric analysis!
