"Commerce is our goal here at Tyrell. 'More human than human' is our motto."
- Tyrell

Electronic commerce is soon going to allow one to grocery shop from the comfort of one's couch; buy Japanese anime and Einstürzende Neubauten imports directly from the importers or in digital form; check one's bank statement and inform the page that one would like to pay one's rent on the 23rd of every month. Who is going to bring this to you? Hopefully a lot of good people that want to make a lot of money at providing value-added services in a a low cost environment -- the NET!

In fact, I've already done the above in one form or another over the Net.
