Sergio: Electronic commerce is great!
Julia: Why is that?
Sergio: Look, I can make a transaction using my computer. Then they will deliver the product I want. All I need is a broadband connection.
Julia: Just another excuse for you to stay at home.
Sergio: That's right. My books from Amazon.com will arrive very soon.
Julia: E-commerce has only one problem.
Sergio: Yeah, too much information on the web site.
Julia: No, I'm not talking about that. The wired consumer benefits more than the producer.
Sergio: Well, the producers are also changing their business models.
Sergio: They are using web-based B2B exchanges. These are mushrooming all over the Internet.
Julia: I heard about that.
Sergio: Big companies like Cisco, Oracle and car maker, GM, are leading the changes.
