Part of BillJoysSixWebs
What Joy is talking about here isn't just consumers making credit-card purchases over the net, but all the invisible negotiating, ordering, inventory tracking between machines that will go on as part of every company's business.
The least interesting from a media perspective, but raises cool philosophical problems such as how to invent ontologies (to http://www.ontology.org/main/page1.html) to) model everything.
Update Nov, 2005. What was I getting at here? I don't think I understood DistributedMarkets or the whole Skype / PayPal potential then. Nor the SemanticWeb or GoogleBase. Nevertheless, there was already a definite connection between commerce and good meta-data in my mind. And that seems fundamental.
