The IT Industry Is Full of Men. So What?
Research indicates that the majority of school-age girls aren't interested in using technology, and most don't even know what IT work entails. Relatively few women are embarking on or involved in lucrative technology-related careers. Many believe this is an uneducated mistake rather than an informed choice, and they are keen to redress the imbalance. So, what does it take to get more women interested in technology, and does IT really need them? [more]

The Business of E-Business

The benefits of e-business are obvious. We're bombarded with statistics on Internet growth and, more to the point, the rise in electronic commerce. We read about companies like Federal Express successfully handling two-thirds of its three million daily packages via online communications But taking advantage of e-business isn't just about technology. Success involves a good dose of understanding how the Web affects culture, public policy, and law.

Ed. - In a recent interview with IBM E-commerce director Scott Gannon, Internet Valley was told that E-business is more than e-commerce, but includes business to business sales and streamlining within the company.

Internet Stock Mania: the Village Idiot's View

I wrote my first column on the value of ISPs for Boardwatch Magazine two years ago, in April 1997. That’s a long time ago in dog-style Internet years. Using the tools of financial valuation I was familiar with, I felt ISPs were being undervalued in the public markets. I have learned a boatload about the ISP business; growth rates, margin potential and the economics of deploying a network, among other things. On the other hand, I don’t really know any more about financial valuation than when I started. Therefore, my criteria for valuing businesses have not changed.

Ed. - The Village Idiot doesn't mean to burst your bubble, but he questions the value of the Internet stocks.

Home Networking Ain't Easy

Like many of you, over the years I have become the computer tech-support person for my family and friends. And while I don't mind being cornered at the grocery store or getting panicky calls for help, the hours are long and the pay is lousy. And sometimes I am just not up to the task. I found that out the hard way, when I set up a home network here at chez Strom.

Steve Forbes to announce candidacy online

Magazine publisher Steve Forbes, who oversees the financial magazine that bears his family name, will formally make his second bid for the presidential post on Tuesday on the Internet, he told a gathering of Silicon Valley executives last night. In the past, Forbes has expressed his opposition to Internet taxes, citing concerns that they would slow the development of the industry.

Ed. - With Texas Gov. George Bush also planning candidacy, it would be interesting to hear Forbes, "Read my lips ..."

The Good Times Virus : An Urban Legend for the Internet

Good Times will re-write your hard drive. It will scramble any disks that are even close to your computer. It will recalibrate your refrigerator's coolness setting so all your ice cream goes melty. It will demagnetize the strips on all your credit cards, screw up the tracking on your television and use subspace-field harmonics to scratch any CDs you try to play.
It was only a matter time before urban legends made their way from our coffee tables to our desktops .

Net Surfer: Portals to the World

The buzzword on the Web these days is "portal." In common usage, the word means a door or gateway, from an impressive arch to a lowly back door. Similarly, in Netspeak, you can think of portals as the grand, imposing entryways through which you sashay on to the Web or the tiny openings through which you infiltrate it. It depends on your self-image, I guess. Portals are all the rage these days, but the concept is an old one.

Marketing Needs Innovation

Sub-$1,000 systems. Project delays and cancellations due to Year 2000 jitters. Big brand names wading into the direct sales channel. These and a number of other factors combined are making the PC market an even nastier place to compete in than usual. When the going gets tough, the tough have to get innovative.

Ed. - Well, they've already come up with free email, free PCs and free long distance service. What can possibly be next? Free cars with the promise to always buy gas from Exxon?

Take Command: A Strategy Game Feature

What will it take to relieve the strategy genre from the grip of mediocrity? Let's face it, strategy games have been plagued by a host of me-too titles, brain-dead AI, useless features for the sake of having features, and a degree of pretension on the order of calling yourself The Artist Formerly Known as Ginger Spice. Thankfully, it seems as though the coming year will feature games less concerned with following trends than with setting them.

`Randomness' Could Lead Hackers to Your Encryption Keys

They may look harmless, but screensavers could betray you while you're out at lunch. Two cryptographers have discovered that the randomness of the ``keys'' that are used to encode encrypted documents could be their downfall. The more random a private signature key is, the harder it is to crack encrypted files. But by scanning hard drives for chunks of data that are particularly random, it was found that it is possible to weed out keys stored on a disc.

Mac vs. PC Creativity

Which is the better computer for an artist? Ask this question to Mac owner or a PC owner, and you'll get the same answer: "My computer is the best." After all, why would someone choose one platform over the other and stick with it, unless he or she thought it was better? The truth is a bit more complicated. As Apple's worldwide market share has shriveled to less than three percent of computers sold, hasn't the PC simultaneously gained all the advantages of the Mac? Well, at the risk of becoming the latest casualty in the Mac vs. PC religious wars, here's my opinion: The Mac is noticeably superior.

Compaq's Brisk Slap At Internet Retailers Was Cold But Needed

The brisk slap that greeted Internet retailers in the form of termination letters last month could only have been pulled off by Compaq Computer. And a necessary slap it was. Traditional retailers who have bit back their competitive instincts by maintaining Compaq's minimum advertised pricing policies and playing by other rules have been justifiably furious over the flagrant skirting of MAPs by the likes of Buy.com.

But whether the flight will be a smooth one for the Japanese economy depends on whether Japan's financial institutions willingly take the pilot's seat or are content to just go along for the ride.

Computing in the Former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe

Recent years have brought tremendous changes in the computer industry, in terms of available technology, the telecommunications field, and global information systems. How have Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union fared in this rapidly changing field and market? This paper will take an informative look at the history of computer development behind the iron curtain, the challenges of trying to catch up to Western technology, and will discuss how that has evolved into the modern information and technology market in that area today.

* 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
