Abstract
Like middle-men in physical world, middle-agents assist in locating and connecting the ultimate (information or goods) provider with the ultimate requester in the electronic world. In this paper, we identify a basic list of dimensions along which middle-agents can differ from one other, and derive a taxonomy.
