Just a quick follow up to my last post...
eBay is not an Evil Empire and John Donahoe is not Dr. Evil. They may have plans for world domination but every multinational conglomerate does, and there is nothing wrong with that.
The point of my last article:
Is more of a parody and not an actual comment on the goodness of the man or the corporation. eBay does a lot of good in this World and I would be remiss to not mention that fact. John Donahoe seems to be a good man and I am sure he is, even though we have never met. I have a very positive impression of Lorrie Norrington and over the years, I have met many good people who work for eBay. It is not an Evil Empire.
eBay is just making its way through transition to a new business model. We all must do that with changing times, I am doing the same thing with my teeny-tiny business. Why shouldn't eBay be allowed to do the same?
Many will lament the old eBay, and will proclaim a movement to return to basics... I am afrraid that train has left the station. If you stick with eBay, and many should... Look forward, not back.
Agree with recent decisions and moves or not, eBay will be with us for some time to come.
