Image result for lemmings cliff
Currently, there is a shake out in direct-to-consumer, also known as "DTC," startups. You may wonder what distinguishes the direct to consumer category from, simply, e-commerce, which is a venerable and already consolidated category.

Baruch Spinoza
“Better that right counsels be known to enemies than that the evil secrets of tyrants should be concealed from the citizens.
