The past few years have been interesting, too. I would say the revolution
*ends* when it has mass appeal. eBay already had 1.5 million users before
they went public. Now they are a $5 billion company and advertise is the
mass media.

I'm interested to see how law gets enforced in such a community. When you
see laws broken, such as the misleading and deceptive advertising laws,
and others that I've mentioned before, what comes next seems pretty
obvious to me: the ebay police.
