A few things for your consideration.
- Multichannel Merchant features an interview with catalog expert Bill End. Mr. End was President/CEO at Lands' End during the majority of my tenure.

- Rick Whittington had the opposite view that I had about shopping cart abandonment.
- Mary Meeker of Morgan Stanley offers this presentation of where the internet is heading.
