What’s the next big idea in tech?
“I think that the new generation of e-commerce is huge. E-commerce was the dog of the Internet for a long time — there was not a lot of innovation, and there were set rules about how you laid out a site and what you had to be good at. I think the new generation of e-commerce is about taking commerce out of the world of tasks and into the world of entertainment: It’s fun as well as being something that you need to do. The new generation of e-commerce that sites like Gilt, Groupon and LivingSocial are a part of are about merging commerce with entertainment and gaming.”
