The digital or new media elite ñ Last Minute’s founders Martha Lane Fox and
Brett Hoberman are examples.
When employees leave a bricks-and-mortar company for an e-business, and

Those people hired purely to pitch and sell a web site idea to a potential
investor or other influential organisation.
Where an old style bricks-and-mortar company moves into the new economy and
wipes out or "bams" the existing competition.
