The IBA has chosen to evolve away from an organization addressing Internet Business for a membership of small and medium businesses. We will become an organization focused on the key technology adoption issues affecting Internet Business for businesses and reviewing the Public policy that attempts to resolve some of the thornier issues.
That is our course, join the "ride" with IBA as one of your bookmarks, soon we'll have an email newsletter
you can subscribe to and stay informed in that media too.
Look for some changes in our
vision and mission statements, an event calendar, and the aforementioned
newsletter. I look forward to doing what can be done as President of the
Internet Business Alliance in the future.

LIST OF US CYBERCITIES
San Jose, California and Seattle, Washington are the top high-tech
cities in the U.S., according to a report released Tuesday by the American
Electronic Association (AeA) and The Nasdaq Stock Market. Emphasizing job growth
and wages in the high-tech industry, the 135-page report offers city-by-city
data on 60 U.S. metropolitan areas. It also provides information on technology
establishments and infrastructure, as well as on such basic quality of life
issues as educational opportunities, housing and commuting. Amazon.com's home
town of Seattle earned the number one spot with respect to high-tech salaries,

IBA PRESIDENT ROBERT
SMITH: INTERNATIONAL ECONOMISTS LAG
Economists from the World Bank, Harvard, and the London School of Economics may
disagree on the issues of e-money and its effect on traditional banking, but one
thing they all have in common is their tardiness in addressing the challenges
of digital financial transactions. (See The Economist, 7/22/00) Customary
custodial procedures and base money so dear to central banks, such as currency,
deposits, accounting, credit, mutual funds will surely take on new forms as
e-money and smart cards spread. IBA President Robert Smith addressed these
issues in 1995 at the first international Internet Law Symposium in Seattle and
following years for various IBA events. No doubt about it: IBA is a good
Internet business resource with forward thinkers.

manufacturing company offered
some realistic lessons for hotshots of New Economy startups (as reported in the
6/22/00 Wall Street Journal): 1) Old and New need technology for
survival and money; 2) Great ideas fuel all kinds of companies and profits
matter; 3) Survivors in the New Economy will do traditional things well; 4)
Presently the stock market will not give the Old its true sense of worth; 5)
Old-line firms need to attract top talent when the weather is favorable.
