The eCommerce Daily is out!

I am really digging paper.li. I use it almost every day. It is a great way to get a news paper look and feel of my social network. I started with The Bob Balfe Daily, which is really my own interest and things I post. I just created The eCommerce Daily which is dedicated to commerce and ecommerce posts. Hopefully this paper is just as interesting for the world of eCommerce as the other one is for my own personal stuff.
