There were several insights in that Solon.com series that I found insteresting, if not a bit scary. For example, the commodity these providers placed on information about their clients (if I remember correctly, the sold and traded names and numbers to each). I was so curious about this that I asked some other providers on another board whether they ever traded names of their clients with each other. They deinied ever doing it, but you have to wonder. I mean, the name of a good client is worth a lot.
