    This interview with Paul Timmers reflects on how the domain of business models has emerged since the publication of the first business model article in Electronic Markets in 1998. The interview provides insights in how his seminal article on business models for electronic markets originated and on the role of government bodies, in particular the European Commission. Among the opinions shared are that electronic markets should be conceived as a broad concept and that interdisciplinary views are key for shaping future developments, especially in the area of ubiquitous data in many industries.
