Todays Secret Word Today is... Disintermediation

I can remember my Dad taking me to the small downtown of our small city and pointing at the 4 or 5 buildings over 20 stories tall and pointing out to me that they were all either banks or insurance companies. He said - "people who are in the business of money make the most money". With the advent of Prosper, the "Ebay of Money" web technology brings disintermediation to the world of money- thanks to trying to get it right for turning me on to this term while describing another disintermediator, Zillow. I'm officially predicting that this will be huge. We'll see.

Very, very interesting. I can only hope that Prosper has the financial backing to build a brand that can, well, prosper.
