Internet retailing getting smarter..

Marks & Spencer launches website in collaboration with Amazon

Is this the shape of what we will see in the future of internet retailing ?
M&S are posting some impressive numbers (and growth) for their internet retailing and integrating this operation with the Amazon brand and presumably fulfillemnt services is a smart move.

Little bit of Kiwi gloating over the Ockers

We don't stand up to Kiwis

I think NZ Trade and Enterprise are doing a great job at promoting the NZ IT sector, clearly the potential and opportunities for exporting intellectual capital are evident.
As a small IT dev company it is hard to put on a truly professional image at global IT or trade shows without spending megabucks... and since there are often higher priorites for the budget trade shows get dumped.
Leveraging the effort NZTE is prepared to make (along with other NZ agencies like Immigration etc) makes it affordable, as well as showing the committment NZ has to the sector.
This is exactly the sort of spending/investing the government should be making to drive economic transformation.

Here we go again

Another crack at keeping my online presence organised.
I am trying to see how easy it is to manage content and content filtering via feeds... I am moving all of my previous client-based stores and links to the internet..
So we will see what falls out of this exercise.
