The Future of Shopping: Online AND In Person

As holiday season approaches, we've got a shopping special! Nora Young points to this article in Technology Review by Avi Goldfarb about the death of the "death of distance" - why local still matters in the ecommerce era. Nora explores this story in an interview with Avi over at Spark. Cathi Bond looks at shopping habits of Generation Z, in an era of social shopping (via Marketing Week). She mentions Wanelo as a cool example of the trend in action. Nora wonders if more of us aren't going to the online/offline social shopping model, and if Gen Z are just early adopters. What do you think? How are your shopping habits changing?
