"Mature e-tailers like Amazon and eBay are more than just online storefronts — they’re also software platforms. [...] Platform vendors thrive by putting themselves at the center of an ecosystem, offering core functions and integration hooks for other products to exploit. In much the same way, the best e-commerce companies are licensing their platforms to other retailers."
I'm CEO of an online trade publishing firm in the marketing and defense verticals. We try to make news and data digestible and useful in an environment that is more noisy each day. This personal blog mixes my thoughts and interests on politics, business, software, and more, based on my business and personal experiences. Over the years I have posted items that turned out spectacularly wrong, and a few posts that stood the test of times better. Personal views only.
