Name: TC Christensen

From: Minnesota

Bio: 12+ Years of computer administration experience and a BSIT degree. I live & breathe computers...

Area of Expertise: Technology Developer/Administrator

Topic: Community/Culture

Headline: Global Business/Economic Market Becomes Seamless

Nutshell: Global trade via the Internet will become casual, necessary, and easy.

Vision: As online commerce grows, the ability to buy, sell, trade services - accross borders, languages, currencies - will continue to grow until there is virtually no way to distinguish between a web site in the US offering a product and one in Asia, Europe, Africa or anywhere else. It's not a stretch.. but the global community will continue to mesh until there is but one single online community that traverses other borders and limitations.
