What do Girl Scout cookies, snow blower parts and a US$2 million waterfront home have in
common? Recently, all have been the focus of flailing attempts at e-mail-based e-commerce.
I was directly involved in one of these e-commerce experiments and, alas, it wasn't the
$2 million house. The lesson so far seems to be that by and large, people don't take
e-mail seriously enough for it to be a viable way to conduct business.

Go to girlscouts.org, and out the word "cookies" in their search engine. Not quite e-commerce, but it should work.

What is your opinion of technology's place in the world?
Technology could be used to solve most of the world's problems if properly applied.
Technology creates more problems than it solves.
Some technologies are inherently good, and some are inherently evil.
I accept technology's risks in order to enjoy its benefits.
I'd like to go back in time to an era when technology was far less prevalent.
I'd like to go forward in time to a more technologically advanced era.
