Enron Mail

Subject:Digital Storm - deadline May 18th.

Hi Jeff,

I am following up on a confidential manuscript I sent you a few days ago of "Digital Storm - Fresh business strategies from the Electronic Marketplace". Is is a book about B2B E-Commerce and E-Markets after the hype. It will be distributed by Wiley this summer as an A+ title (lead category) and Hasso Plattner, CEO of SAP wrote the preface.

Enron is featured as the most successful marketplace to date with a bright future.

I was wondering, whether you would like to include a testimonial for the book. It would certainly also be good marketing for Enron's entry into new marketplaces. For your convenience I include a potential quote:

Running the world's largest electronic marketplace, we embrace the opportunities and challenges of B2B E-Commerce. In 'Digital Storm' Philipp Gerbert and his colleagues give a powerful analysis of what has been learnt and invaluable insights for future strategies in this area.
(you can of course write what you want; more ideas are in the attachment, which also contains additional information).

I apologize that this is a bit urgent - the deadline is Friday this week May 18th).

I very much hope that you enjoy the manuscript. Perhaps you would be interested to further discuss the ideas.

Best regards, Phil Gerbert
