    Quotes from bigger industry story:
    “Consolidation is happening because there are too many products in the marketplace,” says Robert Minton, GM of Moveable Type North America, an open source CMS whose media clients include Advance Internet and the Huffington Post. “Last time I checked there were at least 120 with measurable market share in North America. That’s too many people vying for too little of a marketplace.”
    · Moveable Type’s Minton says there’s another underside to costs being driven down. “It becomes harder and harder to innovate,” he says. “There’re less available dollars, less profit, fewer players in the game, and innovation usually comes from those outlying players that develop something new and different.”
