“Acts of solidarity are going to be either gifts or entrepreneurial affairs, depending on how you understand the basic dynamics.

Shopping in the Future (1981) Matt Novak, Paleofuture Blog (2011-01-24).
I'm often shocked at how accurate some 20th century predictions of online shopping were. However, these retail prognosticators frequently miss the mark by assuming that individual goods would need to be photographed or videotaped live for consumers. While I can kind of understand how this might make sense with fresh fruit,...(Linked Thursday 2011-01-27.)
