    “There definitely will be those that are concerned or upset about these changes,” he said. “Our clear belief is what’s good for buyers is good for sellers, and is good for eBay.”
    John Donahoe, soon to be eBay CEO, January 2008

    “I thought what was good for the country was good for General Motors and vice versa”
    Charles Erwin Wilson, GM president, 1953

  2. Funnily enough, I think JD did OK.

    He seemed fairly on top of all the latest trends and technology.

    You can see the interviewer knew all the pitfalls of ebay.

    The one mistake JD made was saying that listings on ebay are free ! (dur)

    That lady Jane near the end asked a few pertinent questions re fees etc.
