While catching up on trade reading, a comment in the Publisher’s Letter of Internet Retailer magazine caught my eye. While describing the new Internet Retailer website, publisher Jack Love noted that “Soon we’ll be presenting video of interviews with industry experts that we record in a studio just completed in our new corporate office. Video will someday be the primary content on the site, supplemented by written content and data. When the web merges with cable television in a few years, we want InternetRetailer.com to be the cable channel focused exclusively on covering e-commerce.”
Time will tell if his prognostication will be right or wrong, but it’s certainly intriguing. And it makes me all the more eager to hear Internet Retailer’s Editor-in-Chief Kurt Peters at the Mailorder Gardening Association conference (Aug. 16 – 18, Chicago), discussing what he sees ahead for web marketing.
