The Web - The eternal search for customers who will actually pay for content will continue
Search Engines - PPC, PPC, PPC - did I say PPC?

Much tighter government control over money earned and transacted over the Web. Mom and Pop, beware. :( Mark_A msg:819397 5:54 pm on Aug 5, 2002 (gmt 0)

Dont see that as being that radical Keymaster because there is no way to do it without involving the banking community and they are getting increasing regulation ...

My crystal ball says we're going to see some form of modal search rolled out. My guess would be that Google will be first to introduce it, but perhaps MSN. Modal search requires some sort of user profile to store preferences, and MSN's Passport would be easy to adapt to fill that function. Though from a privacy perspective, this would be akin to letting the fox into the hen-house.
