I’m moderating, and I bet some of the other names on the panel might just be familiar. Should be an interesting night, and you guys are invited — details after the break.

From your neighbor’s advice on a doctor to your friend’s advice on planning trips, it’s no wonder more and more consumers are relying on advice from colleagues, family and even strangers to purchase products and services — and even help them decide on which politician to vote for.
