E-marketplace outpaced

I refer to an article on e-marketplaces in Computerworld (May 3, 2004, P3) and was not surprised to read there are only a handful of them left compared to 3000 a few years ago. At the height of the e-marketplace hype we were told the Internet would change forever the way we did business and there would be an endless supply of customers.

After considerable investment I joined an e-marketplace but not a single customer appeared. Today I do business the old-fashioned way, face to face, and guess what, it works.
