A nation of (online) shopkeepers

Interesting study from the Pew Internet & American Life Project, which highlights the rise in on-line selling by individuals. Essentially, the Internet is showing signs of become a giant on-line yard sale.

This is something we obviously talk a lot about here at Cisco, how the Internet is powering so many changes in society. For the most part, we don't see it because the Internet is already such an ingrained part of our lives, we now take it for granted.

The study also highlights how broadband users tend to buy and sell more stuff online. Well sure, that makes sense as it is faster and easier to do so with a high-speed connection.
