The « Right Time » Web and Social Commerce

I gave this presentation at the MIT Enterprise Forum of NY a year and a half ago.  The NY Times Bits blog piece today on comments by Venrock’s Brian Ascher about the « Right Time Web » made me dust it off.  I tidied it up a bit (but not much).  My predictions about the imminent arrival of the « Trusted Reference » model in the e-commerce world were at least a year too soon – I left those unchanged.  (Brian’s colleague David Pakman also blogged about this in the spring.)
