The big eBay announcement today was project Echo. It gives solutions providers valuable real estate within eBay’s Selling Manager. It should be in beta released in January. eBay wasn’t clear if they will charge the 3rd party solutions providers for this service.

There was a good session from Adam Trachtenberg, the Senior Manager of Platform Evangelism at eBay. He touched on changes to the auction description section and links policy. He said eBay is moving the listing description field to another set of servers and there will be a whitelist of allowed HTML tags. He warned that Javascript and Flash content will be affected. More details will be revealed tomorrow.

After hearing about eBay and PayPal all day, it was refreshing to see Phil from Stylefeeder sitting next to me. I joined Stylefeeder 1 1/2 years ago because it was appealing to the eyes and the brain. Members add their favorite style items for others to view and comment on.

A cool new feature is the Style Twin which finds people with similar taste by processing their searches, ratings and etc. Here’s my top style twin out of 5 pages of twins.

Talk to you tomorrow.
