  1. Commerce technology is a massive opportunity (and retail is not dead)

    There has been recent discussion about whether retail is dead. We couldn’t disagree more.

    Our dinner with New York-based ecommerce CEOs was a great time to ask whether content companies have better leverage to get into content or content companies have better leverage to add on commerce.

  7. Why shoes have dominated this generation of ecommerce

    Ecommerce, in all of its various permutations, works when it offers something not otherwise available through brick and mortar retail. In some cases it’s selection. In others it’s convenience or value. In the rarest of all cases, it’s a combination of all three.

  8. Ecomom's aggressive discounting culture should be a cautionary tale for all of ecommerce

    I'm hoping this will be my last post about the sad demise of Ecomom. In case you are new to the story, Ecomom was a once promising ecommerce startup that told investors it was going to start liquidation last week following the tragic suicide of its founder and CEO Jody Sherman.
