From an Inter@ctive Week report: “The popular CBS television show Survivor might have ended, but a new game of survival of the fittest has only just begun among business-to-business Internet marketplaces. Some analysts have been projecting the number of these online exchanges to grow to more than 10,000 in the next few years. But now analysts like Deloitte Consulting expect the more than 1,400 marketplaces that exist today to shrink drastically in the next two years leaving as few as 400 marketplaces to survive.”
