a) the authors of Gorilla Game were also sceptical of it, as an unproven model (as I recall, but correct me if I am wrong;maybe they were sceptical of transaction services model like AOL; check Appendix); or maybe it was the book "Residential Broadband - insider's guide to the last mile", commenting on 'Net business models and advetising...I'm confused); I will follow up if I can; and
