The eBay Live Exhibit Floor!

The floor seems quite a bit smaller than in years past and the booths are really much smaller. eBay booths dominate the floor. It was good to catch up with some friends and wander around meeting new people.

Everyone seems to be in a good mood. I'll be back later with more news during the briefing.

So the tone isn't hostile?

Yeah, what's the general mood of the conference? On the floor - from the vendors, from the participants.

Is anyone going to have the guts to call eBay on their line about 'Buy.com bring new merchandise to eBay' they have not brought anything that was not already for sale.

Someone needs to have some guts to ask the tough questions.

Someone needs to ask big P about his statement saying that it would be a disaster to bring in big off eBay sellers.

Sorry everybody, I've been in meeting most of the day. Buy.com does not hVE booth here.

IMO, eBay is addressing the Buy.com deal with the new Diamond Power Seller status "Diamond" I'll write more about it later.

I'm gathering info right now, you will all just have to be patient :)

BTW, I haven't seen any punches thrown or anything like that

Everybody attending is being very business like.
