Some think that the Net is just hitting its stride. I think that it’s growth is still under-estimated. There’s lotz of room for growth. Even though online selling is still only something like 6% of all retail in the US, one-third of families are doing it. According to this summary of two research reports in the NY Times and this PDF press release from NetRatings some types of products, such as computer hardware/peripherals and consumer electronics, sold more than twice the volume online during the Holidays 2005 vs 2004 (over a 100% increase.)
Happy New Year to everyone working to earn their living on the Web.
