Online auctioneers divide eBay exodus booty

I’ve always wanted to use the words exodus and booty in a headline, and today was my chance. Just look at it… Marvelous in its simplistic complexity… Or maybe I just need another couple of hours of sleep – my two-year-old daughter has been up sick for most of the last two nights, so my mind is a little hazy…

Anyway…

I like this story from over at CNN Money, talking about how a lot of other online sites are already picking up the pieces of the shattered eBay buying coalition. Hardcore eBay-ers will stick with the compnay through thick and thin, but many others are leaving, or simply cutting back and “diversifying,” if you will, in other online markets. Certainly a good idea given looming economic issues and a highly unorthodox presidential election.

The article also contains links to all of the Web sites it discusses, giving you a good chance to check them out and decide what, if anything, you like.
