Power Continues to Shift to the Consumer
Nothing to so with politics, but I discovered a really good new site called Ebuga.co.uk, which is a kind of social networking site for car enthusiasts. Its intention seems to be to build a massive database of car reviews which will inform a potential purchaser before they buy one. I mention it because it once again takes power out of the hands of big companies and into the hands of the consumer. TripAdviser is another site which has a similar effect. After having read the reviews of the Mayflower Hotel in Washington I booked in elsewhere!
