There's always Alan Cooper's "The Inmates are Running the Asylum". Again,
not entirely about ecommerce but about the impact of software developers and
usable design-well-unusable design. Very readable-one of my favourites: what
do you get when you combine a computer and a battleship? A computer-and he
relates how a simple software error stalled a state of the art battleship in
the middle of the gulf.

Happy New Year.
