Thomas Power, Chairman of Ecademy, has produced this intriguing video predicting the evolution of Facebook into a bank. His rationale is based on the idea that "the winner of the game is the one with all the names", which he's been saying since 2001. Ridiculous then, but a bit obvious now.
In the same way that Steven Spielberg can't get his films into movie theatres without the cooperation of distributors, however powerful and influential he is in the industry, Thomas argues that if you have a distribution channel the size of Facebook then you can pretty much dictate what goods and services get to these people.
