The last days of eBay

Interesting article in the London Review of Books by Thomas Jones. I always thought eBay’s competitive advantage (aside from the obvious network effects) lay in its payment system (i.e., PayPal). But proprietary platforms will over time be out-competed by open and modular ones – about time selling something vent from platform to protocol.
