Hmm I do sort of agree with him...There are certain businesses that I
believe will become complete "e-businesses" overnight such as retail
Insurance and retail banking. After all they are just number based

Businesses such as hair dressers could take all their bookings or do house
calls much more efficiently. You could have a choice of what you want your
hair to look like and maybe a recommendation service for people to report on
whether that hairdresser was any good....That then will be an e-business...

Any kind of retail outlet such as a butchers, bakers, candlestick makers,
are pretty well doomed to the depths of "ye oldey" shop type of business in
some kind of 20th century theme park based in highgate. All of a sudden your
local candlestick maker is based in Missouri and has 100000 different kinds
of candles at prices that defy belief.

The only hard one is the Pub... I think it will be a while before we get
networked beer and (old word coming up) virtual reality "atmosphere" and I
am not sure that any one actually wants that.

I hate the propaganda but this is a revolution plain and simple.
