Taylor and Jerome
PC Computing

Taylor and Jerome knock site owners' unrealistic expectations of Web advertising down a notch with an unflinching, right-on-target attack on current advertising models. A right hook to the ambiguity of consumer response measurement, a swift jab at the fickleness of surfers, and the Web advertising model is down for the count. If they care to actually make any revenue from advertisers, site owners should sit up and take notice. [more]

Finding an Internet Job, Even If You Aren't a Techie

So, you want to work on the Internet, but you don't want to learn any boring programming languages? Well, it is possible for nontechies to get Net-related jobs, but one must know what the jobs entail and be willing to learn at least some basic HTML. (If you can program your VCR, you can code HTML.)

Ed. - Heck, if you can tie your shoelaces by yourself, you can code HTML.

The Almighty and All-Important Consumer

Until now, the conventional wisdom regarding e-commerce has pointed solidly at business-to-business sites as the market with the largest potential for growth. But late November and early December of last year saw movement in the stock market that flew in the face of the conventional approach. And now Wall Street has made two basic proclamations: The consumer is king; and it's not about products, but all about service.

The 360-Degree View

Ask the CEO of any large firm about the central focus of the enterprise, and he or she will most likely answer that the bottom line is to serve customers. Assertions about providing good customer service are so ubiquitous that they have almost become cliche. But in spite of the acknowledged importance of a well-served customer, most companies admit that maintaining complete, up-to-date customer information across many departments is a nearly insurmountable task. However, companies can use information technology to find new ways of serving their customers.

Sorry to be party poopers, but Web ads don't work. And until site owners wake up to certain realities, Internet commerce will continue to have the stench of ill repute.

The Cost of Free ISPs

Free computers, free applications, free ISPs. Sometimes it seems as if the future is going to be one long, free ride. Free Web access is a particularly tempting idea. As countries outside the U.S. race to join the free ISP bandwagon, industry analysts aren't all that convinced that the model can be successfully duplicated in the U.S.

Books Embrace The Internet

The Internet didn’t kill television, video didn't kill the radio star, and none of them is going to eradicate books. Each new communications technology causes gnashing of teeth from those who fear their favorite medium will become obsolete. But is the danger real for booklovers in the Internet age? Should die-hard bibliophiles fear the demise of the printed word? Not really. As in the aftermath of Johann Gutenberg’s printing press, the literary world is adapting to a new era.

* 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
