Here are a couple of interesting articles from the Economist that provide two very useful examples of the current state of the Internet as a market:eBay are celebrating their 10th birthday with 150m registered users, and an auction market worth $40bn a year. Meanwhile PartyGaming, at only 2 years old, are looking to float a 23% stake on the London Stock Exchange. My off-the-cuff assessment? It's still a frontier, with high risks and high rewards.
