Four Steps to More Effective Network Services

As the 20th century ends, most organizations find themselves involved, one way or another, in upgrading or extensively revising their computer networks. Chances are, this trend will continue for at least the first decade of the coming century. This will be a time of tremendous opportunity for creating networked applications that can save or make organizations millions of dollars. It will also be a time of turmoil, in which firms can easily mismanage their networks and waste much more of their network budgets than they could have expected.

Yahoo!, Lycos Court E-Retail Biz

Navigation hubs are transforming themselves into retailing hubs. At least that's the case for Yahoo! and Lycos - two portals that have taken definitive steps in recent weeks to cast themselves as magnets for retailing on the Web.

Ed. - We say, may the best business win. But our data for the two portal sites shows Yahoo to have four to seven times more Web influence than Lycos, a lead they are unlikely to relinquish.

Euro Seen as Mixed Blessing for U.S. E-Commerce Companies

When it comes to identifying the biggest programming challenges of the late 20th century, the euro has been ranked right up there with Y2K. Modifying computer systems to accept the common currency embraced last month by 11 European countries has not been easy, we've all been told over and over again. But the real story of the euro has nothing to do with programming and everything to do with changing e-commerce for years to come--long after the Millennium Bug has been forgotten.

DOD, Intell Community Study Web Access

The Defense Department is planning a new round of World Wide Web site security reviews in light of continuing concerns that the large volume of information available to the public on the Internet poses a significant risk to DOD operations, a senior DOD official said today.

Stacking the Deck For E-Commerce

Don't get me wrong, although I am getting relatively addicted to shopping online, that doesn't mean I want my neighborhood turned into a graveyard of boarded-up stores. That's the risk we take if we let the Internet honchos with self-serving agendas set the tone for e-commerce in this country.

Know Your Internet Shopping Rights

The Web remains a relatively new way to shop, but this doesn't mean the Internet is a lawless Wild West where na´ve consumers are victimized and ripped off. Online consumers can benefit from the same legal protections as those who shop by telephone, from catalogs, or by other means.

Larry Wall: Divine Invention

Larry Wall, a linguist and self-effacing polymath, is the creator of the popular and ubiquitous Perl programming language. (Perl stands for "Practical Extraction and Report Language" or, if Wall is in the mood, "Pathologically Eclectic Rubbish Lister.") Created over ten years ago with contributions and critiques of volunteer hackers, Perl is widely considered the "duct-tape" that holds the Internet together.

How to Balance Features, Price, and Performance When Shopping for a Super-Light Notebook

Since first hitting the market a few years back, super-light subnotebooks have traditionally involved some pretty serious sacrifices and trade-offs in terms of feature set and performance. Recently, however, new slim systems from companies such as Sharp, Sony, and Toshiba are coming to market packed with powerful processors, plenty of storage space, and brilliant displays.

Autobytel: In the Driver's Seat

Could lightning strike again for Pete Ellis? A decade ago, Ellis ranked among the nation's largest car dealers, with 16 bustling lots in California and Arizona. But in the early 1990s, the region's economy collapsed, and by 1994, Ellis' high-speed race to riches had ended in a fiery crash when he filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy and walked away from the car business. By 1995 he started autobytel and watched it blossom into an instant success. Now, Autobytel is setting the pace for buying cars online, but the field is getting crowded.

Ed. - As more large companies stop ignoring the Internet, Autobytel's strength could turn into its weakness and possible demise.

Why Windows Web Pages Have Tiny Text

Most Macintosh users have encountered Web pages with unbearably tiny text. If you haven't, spend a few minutes browsing Microsoft's Web site - especially pages devoted to Windows itself - where it's not uncommon for Mac users to see text one to four pixels in height. This phenomenon isn't limited to the Web. How often have you been forced to edit a document from a Windows user who thinks 10 point Times is a wonderful screen font? Or maybe you've had to review a spreadsheet formatted in 9 point Arial? Do all Windows users have some sort of telescopic vision that makes text appear larger to them? Why, yes. They do.

Beware of the Slashdot Effect

The Slashdot Effect. It's not a new disaster film, although for some system administrators it is causing a few sleepless nights. And if your Web server just keeled over, or you cannot work out why your site recorded more traffic in an hour than it usually does in a year, chances are you have already experienced it.

Dynamically Reconfigurable Servers

With the advent of the Web, it is more important than ever to have systems that run continuously. It is always business hours somewhere in the world; there is no good time to bring down servers for maintenance. Over the life of the server, it may be necessary to import new data and code. ... It is relatively easy to implement servers that can import new modules and data at run time. This dynamically reconfigurable server is implemented in Python, a portable, interpreted, extensible object-oriented programming language.

Serving Up Customers

This is no longer a drill. Sites like Surplus Software and 1-800-FLOWERS are serious about selling products online, and the ranks of online shoppers are starting to expand. With public acceptance of secure servers, chances are good that your competitor is already ringing up sales-with or without a RealAudio "Ka-Ching."

Title Search

If a company wants to cook up an e-commerce strategy, sooner or later it will need to find the right chef to lead it. The question is, Who? Should a company pick someone from marketing who knows how to speak the customer's language but doesn't know a firewall from a proxy server? Maybe someone from IS who knows how to build links to the company's back-end systems but doesn't know how to build a brand? Or an outsider who is already up to speed on e-commerce but would need to get up to speed on company politics?

What Price Glory? Is a $638 PC all you need?

A couple of years ago, I walked into a computer store and asked what I could buy for less than $800. I was ushered into the back room by a junior employee who could barely contain his laughter and left me to sift through the computers time forgot. With this humiliating memory in mind, I recently asked six vendors to send me their least expensive, fully configured systems with a monitor--for $800 or less. Guess what? Nobody laughed.

Bad Software: What to Do When Software Fails

It's an old story, and I'm sure you've probably been through it yourself. You buy a box of software, get it home, eagerly tear off the shrink-wrap and start to install it onto your computer, when lo and behold, it either doesn't load, or when you run it, it just doesn't work. There is hope, and in a new book, Bad Software, by Cem Kaner and David Pels, they put forth what amounts to the consumer's guide to dealing with, what else, bad software.

Ed. -If you make any software purchasing decisions perhaps you should read this book.

* IVB: The Internet Valley Benchmark (IVB) compares a company's zone of Web influence to that of its peers and across industries through the use of a standard value. The set level for the IVB is the current zone of Web influence for Internet Valley. Why Internet Valley Benchmark ?

Internet Valley was founded and coined the term Web Influence in 1995.
IV became the first company to provide the online community with full-scale Web Influence related services.
In May 1996, Internet Valley published the first Web Influence list,  rating the Top 100 Online Computer Magazines. Since that time, Internet Valley has continued to develop the hyperlink mechanics-based methods and technology to monitor and evaluate the current level of Web Influence. The basic subjects of this research have been the fastest growing sectors of iBusiness. All this time, Internet Valley has provided to the leading members of the Internet community   reliable data, trends and statistics.

Leading members of the IT community voiced their opinions regarding Internet Valley's  3-year effort to research Web Influence trends:
    - Matthew Rothenberg, director of online content at MacWeek.Com, joint venture of ZDNet and IDG, "We are thrilled by the results of the study..." January 5, 1999
    - IBM e-commerce director Scott Gannon: "I think your research is really proven right on.  I think you're focused on the right thing..." January 28, 1999
