StorefrontBacktalk Week In Review Audiocast Recorded Thurs., Aug. 31, 2006

For your listening pleasure this week, you can hear us discuss video. (That's probably more fun than watching us discuss audio.) Buy.com's video reviews effort, to be precise. Will consumer-generated video content shake up E-Commerce? Also, the panel looks into why fewer than half of all retailers today even have a formal plan for dealing with consumer data security breaches as well as whether technology deployments today are often hurting retail sales.

Our late summer panel this week featured IHL President Greg Buzek, the Retail Systems Alert Group's Steve Rowen and ABI Research's Michael J. Liard. Special industry guest was Dave Samuel, co-president of Grouper Networks, which is now part of Sony Pictures Entertainment. StorefrontBacktalk Editor Evan Schuman moderated.
