E-Commerce Top Ten

The Software Information and Industry Association (SIIA) announced the Ten Most Significant eCommerce Developments of the Past Decade. They are:

  1. Google (Sept. 1998)
  2. Broadband Penetration of US Internet Users Reaches 50% (June 2004)
  3. eBay Auctions (Launched Sept. 1997)
  4. Amazon.com (IPO May 1997)
  5. Google Ad Words (2000)
  6. Open Standards (HTML 4.0 released – 1997)
  7. Wi-Fi (802.11 launched – 1997)
  8. User-Generated Content (YouTube 2005)
  9. iTunes (2001)
  10. BlackBerry (1999)

I’ve used, utilized, or relied on all in the past month, so I can’t argue much with the list. (At first glance I omitted Blackberry from this statement until I remembered that Randy did Google searches on his Blackberry to settle disputes during the bike trip.) What I’d like to see at #11: standardized spelling for eCommerce e-Commerce E-Commerce.
