The sofa from hell threatens eBay

Brian Dear learns why RSS threatens eBay after he had some trouble getting rid of his gigantic sofa. Obviously it takes more, like a heavily trafficked site (he mentions Craiglist, partly owned by eBay) that has the feeds enough users will subscribe to. But he does raise a very good point: who needs the middleman if you can hang an RSS-feed with the stuff you want to sell off your blog, that will be scooped up by a Technorati-like service? Except, of course, that does create a new middleman. [Via John Battelle]
