Whither Knowledge Markets?

Yet another area where the early promise has not been fulfilled (see the iqport example pages 112-116). Again, there are several name changes. The comapnies that sruvive seem to blend online markets with traditional methods. Thus AskMe now makes more revenue from selling software, while Etrask seems to use the phone as much as the Internet to mathc buyer and seller. For an update on this topic read the article 'Knowledge Markets: Do They Have a Future?'.
